International students have the opportunity to apply for degree completion grants within the so-called STIBET programme, which is funded by the Foreign Office and provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
Eligible to apply are students that have been awarded good grades and can be expected to complete their studies within one year. The grant is also meant to support international students - who without their own doing are experiencing financial difficulties - in successfully completing their course of study, making it possible for them to focus on their final exams and thesis.
The degree completion grant can be awarded for a duration of no more than six months (extract from DAAD guidelines).
Grant recipients will be selected by a Heilbronn University commission.
There are 3 application deadlines per year: April 1st, July 1st and October 1st.
The applicants are informed within approx. one month of the commission's decision via e-mail.
The application documents must be complete, providing all necessary information, including a complete series of bank statements – all incoming payments must be either comprehensible or explained by the applicant.
