Germany has initiated fully-funded scholarships for international students seeking undergraduate and post-graduate academic programs through the SBW Berlin Scholarship 2024 initiative.
The SBW Berlin scholarship aims to support foreign students in pursuing fully-funded bachelor’s or master’s degree studies at universities or universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschule) in Berlin or Potsdam, Germany.
As per the information available on its website, the scholarship includes monthly stipends, lodging allowance, travel reimbursement, and a complete waiver of tuition fees.
Prospective candidates should have prior experience working with non-profit organizations or social institutions in their home countries.
Recipients of the scholarship are required to continue their social projects within the non-profit organization or social institution and further advance these projects in their respective home countries after the study program or funding period concludes.
Furthermore, applicants must be aged between 18 and 30, with professional or volunteer experience in the non-profit/social sector, supported by letters of recommendation from the respective social institution or non-profit organization.
Applicants are required to demonstrate that they have not lived in Germany for more than 18 months prior to their application. Additionally, they must possess the qualifications for university entrance and express the intention to either work for a minimum of 18 months in their home country after graduating or engage in charitable activities in Germany until fulfilling the repayment plan.
Furthermore, candidates should have a verified relatively low net income, maintain an average grade equivalent to a German grade point average of at least 2.0, and not have immediate family members permanently residing in Germany.
Moreover, applicants should apply either before starting their studies or be enrolled in the first, second, or maximum third semester at a state-recognized university (in Germany or abroad), or apply for a master’s degree shortly before or after completing a bachelor’s degree.
