STIBET SCHOLARSHIPS

The 1st STIBET scholarship goes to an Indian student who started to study Master Applied Computer Science in October 2016. In 2017 he worked as a student helper, but after his work contract ended he did not stop to show commitment to his fellow-students, he did a 24 hours job and supported the arrival of more than 180 students from many different countries such as India, Australia, Germany, Finland, Poland, Italy, Paraguay, Mexico, USA to name a few. Furthermore he is an excellent student showing a very good performance. Congratulations Ajinkya Rangnath Patil!

The 2nd STIBET scholarship is for an American student who started to study Bachelor Business Administration in October 2015. She has always worked very hard to finance her studies here, but this has never prevented her from being involved in helping her fellow-students. She coordinated Welcome Events for the arriving students, assisted during the Orientation Days and had always an open ear for the 1,000 questions of new international students, not only as student helper in the International Office but also in her “free” time. She also shows a very good performance in her studies and she has spent a successful Erasmus+ semester in Poland where she again had the experience of what it means to come into a country as a student from a foreign country. Welcome Stephanie Farrar.

The next three STIBET graduation scholarships go to three students who have shown an outstanding performance in their different study courses, which is the main reason why they get this stipend:

Aditya Kulkarni studies Master International Business and Engineering and works for his Master thesis at “Fresenius Kabi Deutschland” a healthcare company in Frankfurt.

Rohit Naik studies Master Applied Computer Science and works as a software developer (work student) at the “Etecture GmbH”, a software company in Frankfurt.

Akash Prabhakar Name studies Master Information Technologies and develops a software tool at “Robert Bosch GmbH Schwieberdingen”.

STIBET is a scholarship and support programme which is financed by the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst/German Academic Exchange Service). It is funded by public funds from the German Foreign Office and serves for improved support and scholarships of international students. There a two kinds of scholarships: For students who have shown considerable commitment to their fellow-students and for students who have applied for a graduation scholarship for their outstanding performance. The scholarship is financial aid of approx. 300 €/month for 4 months.

Since 2001 the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung has supported the international exchange of students and young vocationally qualified people by awarding the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM. With the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung enables both young people from Baden-Württemberg to spend some time abroad and invites foreign scholarship holders to get to know Baden-Württemberg. For this purpose they receive a scholarship amounting to up to EUR 1,400 per month for a maximum of eleven months. When their placement is confirmed and in particular after their return from their time abroad, the scholarship holders are supported ideally and integrated into a comprehensive international network in which people from the widest range of disciplines and cultures can contact each other.
