The International Office offers very limited assistance in the form of fellowships for completion of degree (Studienabschlussstipendien) funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The allowance may be granted to students and doctoral candidates on application for the last 3-6 months of their studies leading to completion of their degree at Humboldt.

You are entitled to apply for the fellowship if you are completing a full course of studies, and if you are facing financial difficulties due to the work regarding the final thesis.
