The Ministry of Science and Culture has granted the Lower Saxony State Scholarship ("Landesstipendium Niedersachsen") in past years. The Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences has been able to award over 100 scholarships each year.
These were each for one-time payments of 500 euros. Funds in particular improved the scholarships available to highly talented students from so-called educationally deprived social strata. In addition, social grounds and outstanding volunteer engagement both inside and outside of the university were taken into account.
NEXT APPLICATION PERIOD: October 7 - 21, 2021
We are pleased to announce that the Ministry of Science and Culture will be granting the Lower Saxony State Scholarship ("Landesstipendium Niedersachsen") once again in 2021. University Advancement will award 100 scholarships. These will be for a one-time payment of 500 euros. Funds should primarily be used for scholarships for highly talented students from so-called educationally deprived social strata, in particular for first generation students and students who face particularly difficult conditions for starting and continuing a degree program due to their refugee background. In addition, social grounds and volunteer engagement and, this year, due to the Corona pandemic, Corona related effects in particular, can also be taken into account.
Students enrolled in basic Bachelor’s or consecutive Master's degree programs at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences by the start of the approval period who have not taken a leave of absence can receive a scholarship. Students enrolled in dual, part-time or integrated occupational degree programs, and students in continued training degree programs are excepted from funding.
All application information is provided in our guidelines for the Lower Saxony State Scholarship ("Landesstipendium Niedersachsen"), as well as in the advertisement during the application period.
We look forward to receiving your application, and wish you much success.
