Funding opportunities

Scholarships For International Exchange Students


Target group and application procedure

Our scholarships in the amount of up to 1500 EUR per student (paid in two instalments) support international exchange students from our partner universities as well as from universities with which co-operation agreements are currently being implemented or planned.

The selection of suitable candidates is carried out by an independent committee based on the following criteria:

  •     Personal circumstances (e.g. cancellation of student's original funding or other financial emergencies)
  •     Country of student's home university with regards to the  DAC list of ODA recipients or the Human Development Index
  •     Social Commitment (e.g. volunteering, charity work)

Application requirements:

All applicants have to be enrolled as an exchange student at HTW Berlin at the time of receiving the scholarship.

Furthermore, scholarships can only be granted to students who complete their entire exchange, starting with the Welcome Meeting and ending with the end of the first exam period.

Our scholarships cannot be awarded to students who receive other funds from domestic or foreign agencies  for the same purpose during their exchange at HTW Berlin (e.g. scholarships from Erasmus+, Swiss Mobility or similar)
