SBW Berlin Scholarship
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.
One of the most important requirements of the SBW Berlin scholarship is the SBW Berlin recipients´ intention to return and recide in their home countries for at least 18 months after the completition of their studies. Thus, from the beggining of the scholarship, SBW Berlin supports all scholarships recipients to realize their professional goals in their home countries . This is done through networking with other organizations, throught SBW Berlin´s assistance with targeted job searches in the scholarship recipients´ home countries and with the preparation of job materials thereafter. In addition, all developend social non-profit projects should have strong connections with the scholarship recipients´ home countries.
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.
