About the programme
STIBET I is a programme from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) financed by the Federal Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt) to improve the study experience for foreign students.
What does the STIBET Graduation Grant fund?
The STIBET graduation grant aims to support non-German students with financial difficulties that might prevent them from graduating.
The STIBET grant for incoming exchange and dual degree students aims to support non-German students joining us from one of our international partner schools for one or two semesters.
The exact grant amount will be determined each year and is subject to availability of funds provided by the DAAD. Generally funding is provided for two up to four months with a monthly allowance ranging from 250 € (minimum) up to 850 € (maximum).
