Dedaline: 15th May to 30th June & Nov 15th to 31st Dec [Every year] | SBW BERLIN SCHOLARSHIP 2024

Talented international students who have already demonstrated a commitment to social responsibility and who apply the knowledge and skills they have gained during their studies to work on social projects at a non-profit or social organisation in their home countries are supported by the SBW Berlin Scholarship for International Students.

Our scholarship recipients engage in social projects while attending classes in Berlin. Ideally, these initiatives support philanthropic causes run by local organisations in their home nations and/or help to raise standards of living there.

Our scholarship recipients are required to carry out the projects in their home countries and further them using the knowledge and skills they have gained here after successfully completing their studies. SBW Berlin is still providing them with advising help.
