University of Wuppertal Foundation
The University of Wuppertal Foundation will award scholarships to commence in winter semester 2018-2019. The award takes special account not only of an applicant’s academic promise, but also of his or her personal circumstances and/or readiness to take on social responsibilities. Students who are enrolled for at least one year on a regular basis at the University of Wuppertal (UW), are 35 years of age or under, have not yet completed their degree (master’s degree where applicable), and are not receiving financial support from any other source may apply, so long as their financial situation would allow them to receive BAföG funding (Federal Education Assistance), but for one of the following reasons they are not entitled to it:
Funding group A
- They are non-German citizens (who as such do not qualify for BAföG funding, which is half grant, half interest-free loan), and are not receiving any other scholarship funding.
Funding group B
- They receive BAföG funding but – due to late change of degree program, or several changes, or for other reasons – not for the maximum length of time, and their funding has already ceased or will cease at the end of summer semester 2018.
Funding group C
- Their BAföG funding will – because the maximum funding period has ended – cease in winter semester 2018-2019, and they expect to take their degree within a year.
The scholarship amounts to a maximum of €300 per month.
The scholarship is awarded for one academic year, paid monthly.
