Corona Bridging Grant

Corona emergency support

The international department of Humboldt-Universität is glad to announce that it was in a position to financially assist international students and PhD candidates, who had lost their jobs, stipends or other sources of income and were facing financial hardship due to the Covid19 pandemic. The International Scholar Services allocated an emergency fund for the purpose, and as such was able to quickly provide 51 international students from 22 countries an emergency stipend for a two-month period. The program was concluded on 15.05.2020. All HU students, including international students, however, now have the possibility to apply for a student loan from Kfw Bank . This credit is until 31.03.2021 free of interest. More information can be found directly on the website of Kfw Bank under:
