Humboldt Scholarship

General information about the Humboldt-Stipendium

Apply for Humboldt-Scholarship (within the Germany Scholarship programme of HU)!

 

 

 

The Humboldt-Stipendium of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin supports excellent students of all nationalities. In addition to academic performance, criteria such as the educational background, social and/or political commitment (e.g. in higher education policy, in religious communities or political organisations and the effort in the social environment) are taken into account as well.

With the Humboldt-Stipendium students studying for a State Exam, Bachelor's or Masters's degree receive financial support with 300 euros monthly for at least two semesters within the standard period of study. The Humboldt-Stipendium is split equally by the federal government and private sponsors such as corporations, foundations, associations and alumni.

Selection criteria

Scholarships will be awarded to students with excellent grades by appointed commitees (comprised of professors, students and a representative of the university's headship). In addition to academic performance, criteria such as the educational background, social and/or political commitment (e.g. in higher education policy, in religious communities or political organisations and the effort in the social environment) are taken into account as well.

 

Double funding

The scholarship is independent of income and can be combined with support from the BAföG.

A double funding by another Scholarship Foundation for gifted students (even if you only receive book money) is excluded. By the law, only a financial funding is allowed, which does not exceed 29.99 euros / month. (Exceptions: siehe BMBF-StipG §4).

 

Amount and length of the funding

The selected fellows receive 300 euros per month for 6 or 12 months. An extension of the funding is possible on request within the standard period of study.

 

Humboldt-Themenklassen

Since the summer semester 2013, two German scholarship Themenklassen have been sponsored by the HU, in which 15 Bachelor's and Master's students work on interdisciplinary projects for one year.
