Final Year Scholarships for international HAW Hamburg students

International students at the HAW Hamburg can apply for a scholarship when they are in their final year and only have to complete their final exams and Bachelor's or Master's thesis. You can apply for a DAAD-Scholarship at the HAW Hamburg International Office and for a City of Hamburg Scholarship at the Studierendenwerk Hamburg. We recommend that you apply for both to increase your chances of being awarded a scholarship.

Important: Starting in the summer semester 2018, the application for the Final Year Scholarship of the International Office has to be submitted online via the application platform Mobility Online. The next deadline is 30. April 2018.

Scholarship:

The amount of the scholarship is based on the financial situation of the applicant. The maximum amount is calculated according to the current maximum BAföG rate.

Application requirements:

Applicants must meet the following criteria in order to apply for the scholarship:

  • You are an international Bachelor or Master student at the HAW Hamburg.
  • You will be finishing your Bachelor studies within 12 months after applying for the scholarship. Master students may apply if they only need to complete their Master thesis. 
  • You have good grades.
  • You are financing your studies on your own and can prove that you are in financial need.
  • You are not entitled to BAföG, i.e. you do not fulfil the requirements of § 8 of the Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz (BAföG) (If you are unsure please contact the BAföG Amt. You should definitely do this if you do not have a residency permit according to §16 Aufenthaltsgesetz or are an EU citizen.)
