With our scholarship, we support talented young people from abroad who are socially committed and have volunteer work experience. We believe that education is key to improve the living conditions in the poorer countries of the world.
Therefore, as part of our cooperation with other non-profit organisations, we award scholarships to young, committed talents from abroad so that they can achieve a university degree or apprenticeship in Berlin. A full scholarship includes the funding of the tuition fees, accommodation in our in-house student flats and a monthly allowance for living expenses.
Our scholarship holders initiate and implement social projects while they are studying in Berlin. Ideally, these projects a are part of the non-profit work of organisations based in their home countries and / or contribute to improving the living conditions there.
After successfully completing their studies, we expect them to continue these projects and advance them through the skills they have acquired here. SBW Berlin assist with advice and mentoring.
As refugees are usually unable to return to their homeland, slightly different requirements apply to them.
At present, our scholarship is reserved for students from Eastern Europe, South America, Asia and Africa. We believe that these regions have a particular need for development assistance due to their current economic and/or social situation.
Detailed information about our scholarship and the entire application and selection process can be found in our guidelines.
