Financial Support for international Students

The International Office awards emergency grants ("Notfall-Beihilfen") and degree completion grants (“Studienabschlussbeihilfen”) to international students from non-EU countries who are currently enrolled at Leibniz University Hannover.  


Emergency Grant ("Notfall-Beihilfe")

International students who are temporarily in an acute financial emergency through no fault of their own can apply for emergency aid. Applicants must be enrolled at Leibniz Universität Hannover and not be on leave of absence. As a rule, this allowance can only be granted once during the period of study. Exceptions are possible in cases of hardship, but must be justified separately.

The amount of the emergency grant depends on the type of emergency and the available funds.

Personal counselling is recommended before applying for emergency grant. Please direct requests for counselling to:
