Baden-Württemberg Scholarship Programme for Refugees from Syria Teaser Programme goal Bachelor s and master s degree scholarships for refugees from Syria in Baden-Württemberg The Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg has allocated funding to provide academically qualified refugees from Syria a new perspective and ensure that their potential does not go untapped. The goal is to offer refugees from Syria residing in Baden-Württemberg the opportunity to enrol in or continue a degree programme at a university in the state of Baden-Württemberg. The scholarship programme is administered by the DAAD on behalf of the state of Baden-Württemberg. The scholarships are intended to help the chosen students actively shape their future. During their studies, the universities and other organisations will offer academic support and counselling. Scholarship holders may also enrol in an optional supplementary programme, e.g. in the field of Social and Political Studies, which can be completed alongside their degree programme in a blended-learning process. Who can apply? To be eligible to apply, individuals must be Syrian nationals or individuals who continuously resided in Syria prior to 2011, who were forced to flee from Syria due to the civil war there. Furthermore, they must now reside in Baden- Württemberg and possess a valid residence permit (Aufenthaltstitel), temporary residence permit (Aufenthaltsgestattung) or tolerance status (Duldung). Applicants to the scholarship must also meet the admission requirements for the respective bachelor s or master s degree programme at Baden- Württemberg s institutions of higher education. If the applicant does not yet hold a higher education entrance qualification for a bachelor s degree programme at the planned date of enrolment, this programme can finance participation in a university preparatory programme, (Studienkolleg). As a rule, the applicant s higher education entrance qualification respectively the most recent academic degree must have been obtained within the past six years. Female applicants are especially encouraged to apply. What is funded? This programme grants scholarships to students who wish to enrol in a bachelor s or master s degree programme in Baden Württemberg in any discipline. Applicants interested in studying Human Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine, Art, Music and Law, may apply for funding if they have already gained admission to the respective subject at a university in Baden- Württemberg or are currently enrolled in the respective programme in Baden- Württemberg. Duration of funding Most of the selected scholarship recipients will begin their German language course in July 2015 and provided they meet the programme s language requirements will commence their studies (or Studienkolleg, if applicable) at a university in Baden-Württemberg in the winter semester 2015/2016. The duration of funding is based on the standard period of study of the chosen degree programme and the DAAD funding regulations.
