Contact scholarships

International guest students who visit Bergische Universität Wuppertal in the framework of a university partnership for up to two semesters are eligible to apply for a contact scholarship from funds of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD - "Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst"). The amount of the monthly scholarship instalment depends on the education level of the recipient. For students who do not have a degree (recognised in Germany), yet, the monthly instalment can amount to a maximum of 750 Euros. Students who already have an undergraduate degree (recognised in Germany) can receive up to 850 Euros per month.

Applicants who already receive other funds by domestic or foreign parties for the same purpose cannot receive a contact scholarship!
