Eligibility criteria

No other applicant has a profile like yours – the strength of the Dr. Jost Henkel Stiftung lies in its ability to go into it in detail with flexibility. Every application for a scholarship will be assessed individually. Accordingly, we offer various levels of support. We pursue the principle of diversity. We are convinced of this because the themes and focal points that we support will be reflected later in the knowledge and employment landscape of our society. As a consequence, our support of a diverse array of qualifications will enable us to contribute to a robust competence level.

What we support

The foundation supports students worldwide in pursuing their educational goals. The scholarship program is in principle open to students from all disciplines. Economics, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering are preferred fields of study. We do not support travel cost, conferences or other short term events.

Outstanding performance in your studies is a basic requirement for assistance.

Whom do we assist?

The foundation primarily assists students who have demonstrated above-average performance in their studies and who do not have adequate financial resources of their own to complete their studies in good time.

How we provide assistance

Based on the specific situation of the applicant, the Dr. Jost Henkel Stiftung offers various assistance programs:

  • Monthly payments (continuously even during semester breaks)
  • One-time payments
  • Interest-free loans

In order to be able to assess applicants’ dedication, motivation and ambition to a high degree, the Dr. Jost Henkel Stiftung reserves to itself broad latitude for decision-making.
