From 2023 to 2027, the HSNR can award scholarships to refugees as part of the NRWege ins Studium programme, sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
Scholarships are awarded refugee students who are highly motivated and very likely to thrive in their studies.
Students who would like to apply for a scholarship need to be enrolled as a regular student at HSNR and have a refugee status.
The amount of funding depends on the type of scholarship and the funding period and is limited to a maximum of 934,- € per month.
Partial scholarships can be awarded, too. A partial scholarship amounts to a maximum of 300,- €.
Applicants for a full-time scholarship will have to prove that they have applied for BAföG (student funding) and that the application has been rejected or not yet approved. BAföG recipients can receive a scholarship of 300,- €.
Two types of scholarships:
- Full scholarship: 934,- € per month for a maximum of one year.
- Partial scholarship (as a supplement to e.g. BaföG): of 300,- € for a maximum of one year with above-average academic achievements.
