Witten/Herdecke Scholarship for International Students
Witten/Herdecke University is proud to announce a new scholarship for international Witten/Herdecke students from lower income countries. This scholarship is financed by German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and Hochschulwerk Witten/Herdecke e.V.
This funding forms a generous program of non-repayable support to help ensure that a Witten degree is accessible to all academically talented international students regardless of family income. As tuition fees can be paid after the completion of the studies in dependence on the personal income (inverse contract between student generations), this award is intended to help with living expenses only.
The scholarship comprises a monthly grant of €700,- for a 11 months starting March 2016 to February 2017. It is not intended for PhD students since they have regular income. Also you cannot study correspondence courses at the UWH. Eligible are Witten/Herdecke international students who meet the following criteria:
- Nationality of a lower income country (annual GDP/capita less than 10.000,00 $)
- Registration certificate or successful application for a degree program at Witten/Herdecke University. You have to have a confirmation letter from the University Witten/Herdecke, affirming that you will definitely study at the university.
- Personal need of funding
The application deadline March 23, 2016.
We do not give out any information on how to apply to the University Witten/Herdecke or to what programs are offered. You may apply to this scholarship by sending the following documents to Dagmar.Koch@uni-wh.de
- Your CV
- An informal motivation letter and declaration about your financial background (one page total)
