Deutsche Universitätsstiftung: Welcome Programme

Programme Description

In 2015 the German University Foundation DUS launched the Welcome scholarship programme for students at German higher education institutions who are refugees. It is based on a unique concept: on-site teaching staff mentor students in a one-on-one approach in the candidates’ respective subject areas. The DUS acts as a mediator between the teaching staff and the students. In addition, the scholarship offers workshops (on time- and learning management skills, how to put together a presentation, rhetoric or business etiquette), coachings, networking opportunities, potential analyses, specialist meetings and symposia and a budget for study-related costs and tech equipment to promote the students’ academic success and facilitate their access to the German labour market.

Academic Requirements

Applicants are enrolled in a Bachelor’s programme at a German institution of higher education, colleges of art or music (humanities, economic sciences or STEM disciplines), and have not yet completed their 2nd semester.

Number of Scholarships

Approx. 40

Duration

Students receive the scholarship until they have finished their programme (standard period of study + 2 semesters).
