Lower Saxony Scholarship (Landesstipendium Niedersachsen)

Lower Saxony Scholarship

Leibniz University Hannover will award Lower Saxony Scholarships ("Landesstipendium Niedersachsen") for winter semester 2022/23. The scholarship can be awarded to students enrolled in an undergraduate programme or consecutive master's programme at Leibniz University Hannover, who have not taken leave of absence and will complete their degree in the standard period of study.
Scholarship holders receive a one-off payment of €500.

Criteria

Eligible applicants include students with outstanding results (evidence must be provided in the form of an official, up-to-date transcript of marks (“Notenspiegel”) from the Examination Office), as well as talented students from educationally underprivileged backgrounds (neither parent has attained a qualification higher than a school-leaving certificate) and “first-generation students” (students that are the first in their family to study). Provision of this information is voluntary.

First semester students applying for a scholarship must provide their university entrance qualification (Abitur or similar). International first-semester students are required to submit a German translation.

Students who, due to fleeing, have particularly difficult starting conditions and general conditions for studying, are also eligible to apply for funding. For this, evidence must be provided.

There is no legal entitlement to this scholarship.

Application procedure

Applications will be processed after the application deadline. Prospectively, successful candidates will be notified in November 2022 and asked to submit a confirmation of acceptance.
The completed confirmation of acceptance must be signed and submitted to the indicated email address. Please make sure that your bank details and tax identification number are correct.

The scholarship amounting to € 500 will prospectively be transferred until the end of January 2023.

Unsuccessful candidates will be notified at the end of the process (prospectively at the end of January 2023). Please note that we are not in a position to accommodate individual queries regarding the status of your application in the meantime.
