The Kassel Stipendium (Kassel Scholarship) is a support program offered by the Kassel Studierendenwerk and will be awarded for the first time in the winter semester 2023/24 to students at the University of Kassel who are successfully completing their studies inspite of especially demanding life situations.
In the first funding year, we will support five students with a migration or refugee background whose parents did not attend university in Germany with the Kassel Stipendium.
The support is both financial and non-material. The aim is to support young people who show exceptional performance in their studies despite difficult conditions.
In addition to the monthly financial 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 that are personally relevant to them, and to network with them.
In this way, Studierendenwerk Kassel is following the example of a very successful nationwide program: the "Hamburg Stipendium" of Studierendenwerk Hamburg.
