The Absolventa scholarship is an initiative of the nonprofit Absolventa e.V. which is based in Germany. It allows all students the opportunity to receive a scholarship, regardless of grades, social class or political affiliation.
Funding is in form of a lump sum up to max. 3,000 Euro during the study period.
The scholarship is aimed at students from all programmes and institutions. Foreign students in Germany are eligible to participate, provided they study at a German, Austrian or Swiss university. No age restriction is given.
The most important pre-requisite for participation is to provide a concrete funding desire or wish that is associated with your studies.
The request for funding should be limited to no more than three items that are directly related to each other.
For example, the fee for vaccination, the visa and the flight for a semester or a laptop and its associated software.
The maximum grant is 3,000 Euro per scholarship. The individual support amount is based on the expenditures for the promotion request.
The requested amount must therefore correspond roughly to your funding request, otherwise the application will not be approved!
For example, a geology field trip one-student cost in the Himalayas several thousand euros, the cost of printing the thesis but only a few hundred euros.
In this way, the scholarship Absolventa grants is a unique individual support.
The total sum is divided among several candidates. This means that the lower the amount of funding required, the more applicants are eligible and receive a grant.
