The University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover is expected to award 18-20 German scholarships for the grant period October 2021 to September 2022 to students with excellent performance in their studies.
The start of the application period is yet to be announced. The link to all important information, the respective application deadlines and the application form can be found below.
In addition to above-average performance in studies, social and political commitment as well as special personal and family circumstances are also taken into account when awarding scholarships.
The scholarship holders receive a grant of 300 EUR per month. EUR 150 is provided by companies, foundations, associations and private sponsors. The other half is contributed by the federal government in the form of a matching fund.
Students in the undergraduate program of veterinary medicine and in the consecutive master's program "Animal Biology and Biomedical Sciences" can apply. Students who are enrolled to pursue a doctorate are not eligible for funding. During the funding period, the recipient must be enrolled at the TiHo. The application for the scholarship can be made before enrollment. Scholarships are awarded irrespective of income and can be combined with BAföG funding. A scholarship will not be awarded if the student receives other talent and performance-based material support (over 30 EUR / month). The Presidential Board has established a selection committee for the selection of scholarship holders.
