Financial Aid Fund for Students

With assistance from the Financial Aid Fund, students of all nationalities facing financial difficulties through no fault of their own can obtain aid, easily and on short notice, so they can graduate.

Current funding instruments:
  • The amount of funding depends on the financial situation of the student
  • Aid is designed to bridge the financial gap and is awarded for a maximum of one semester
  • Funding supports students in the final phase of their education.
