Support for students in demanding life situations

The Kassel Scholarship is offered by the Studierendenwerk Kassel and has been awarded since the winter semester of 2023/24 to students at the University of Kassel who are successfully completing their studies despite demanding life circumstances.
In the second funding year, 2024/25, the Kassel Scholarship will support 14 students with a migration or refugee background whose parents did not attend university in Germany.
The support will be both financial and idealistic. The aim is to support young people who, despite difficult circumstances, achieve outstanding results in their studies and demonstrate not only academic but also social skills.
In addition to a monthly support of 200 euros each, the scholarships also serve to bring the students into contact with the regional economy, to participate in events as part of a scholarship network, to offer them educational opportunities on topics relevant to them personally, and to provide them with networking opportunities.
In doing so, the Studierendenwerk Kassel is following the example of a very successful nationwide program: the "Hamburg Scholarship" of the Studierendenwerk Hamburg.

You can apply for the 2024/2025 funding year from May 15 up to and including June 30 if you meet the following requirements:

  • You have a migrant or refugee background (the exact definition can be found in the Award Guidelines).
    Please note: The scholarship is not aimed at international students (§ 16b AufenthG).
  • Your parents did not attend a university in Germany,
  • You have an above-average academic record, even though you have or had to deal with difficult life circumstances,
  • You are enrolled as a regular student at the University of Kassel,
  • You can prove that you are financially needy,
  • You speak several languages,
  • You are involved in voluntary work.
