Degree completion grants

International Bachelor's and Master's students at HAW Hamburg can apply for a degree completion grant when they are in the final stage of their studies. They can apply for German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) funding through the HAW Hamburg International Office and for state funding through Studierendenwerk Hamburg.

You can apply to both programmes in order to increase your chances of receiving funding. The amount of state funding available for degree completion grants is significantly higher than the amount of DAAD funding available. This means that the chances of receiving funding through Studierendenwerk Hamburg are significantly higher. It is not possible to receive both types of funding.
