Scholarship for international students

What is STIBET?

SRH Berlin announces STIBET Final Semester and Engagement Scholarships for international students. The programm is called “Combined Scholarship and Support Programme” (Kombiniertes Stipendien- und Betreuungsprogramm); the funding is provided by Federal Foreign Office for German universities and is intended to make it easier for German universities to create hospitable and performance-promoting conditions for their international students. The funds are administered by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).  

The STIBET programme includes the DAAD Award, which is awarded once a year to an outstandingly committed student; students can apply until 27.11.2023. We also use these funds to partically finance the Residence Permit Service in the International Office, which supports students in applying for a residence permit in Berlin, as well as intercultural events during the introductory week and during the semester. The Global Cooperation Institute coordinates the STIBET programme at SRH Berlin. 

You can apply for the scholarship programme if you are pursuing a Bachelor's or Master's degree full-time at SRH Berlin.  

There are two types of scholarships: 

  1. Graduation scholarship 
  2. Commitment scholarships
