Ausschreibung: Abschluss-Stipendien für das Wintersemester 2011/2012

Das kombinierte Stipendien- und Betreuungsprogramm (STIBET) des Deutschen Akademischen Austauschdienstes (DAAD) dient der verbesserten Betreuung ausländischer Studierender und Doktoranden und stellt gleichzeitig Stipendien für ausländische Studierende und Doktoranden bereit, die von den Hochschulen im Rahmen ihrer Internationalisierungsstrategien, z.B. zur Stärkung ihrer internationalen Partnerschaften eingesetzt werden können. Durch das Programm STIBET soll eine signifikante Verbesserung der Betreuungsleistungen für ausländische Studierende und Doktoranden erreicht und damit die Attraktivität und Wettbewerbsfähigkeit des Studienstandortes Deutschland erhöht werden.

Durch das Stipendienprogramm erhalten die Hochschulen die Möglichkeit, in eigener Entscheidung Stipendien aus Mitteln des DAAD an ausländische Studierende und Doktoranden zu vergeben. Es können sowohl Studierende in grundständigen Studiengängen (Diplom, Magister u.ä., Bachelor) als auch in weiterführenden Studiengängen (z.B. Master) bzw. Doktoranden gefördert werden. Die Studierenden müssen für ein reguläres Studium mit dem Ziel, einen der genannten Abschlüsse zu erwerben, eingeschrieben sein.

Aus diesen Mitteln kann die Folkwang Universität der Künste für das laufende Wintersemester 2011/2012 noch zwei Abschluss-Stipendien an ausländische Studierende vergeben:

Studienabschluss-Stipendien

Ziel: Vorrangiges Ziel von Studienabschlussbeihilfen ist es, ausländischen Studierenden und Doktoranden, die ohne eigenes Verschulden in Not geraten sind, durch finanzielle Unterstützung die Konzentration auf ihr Studium und den Studienabschluss zu ermöglichen.

Voraussetzung für eine Förderung ist, dass die Studierenden und Doktoranden gute Leistungen erbracht haben und ein erfolgreicher Studienabschluss binnen eines Jahres zu erwarten ist.

Förderdauer: Die Studienabschlussbeihilfe kann für max. sechs Monate vergeben werden; eine Verlängerung bis max. 12 Monate ist in Ausnahmefällen möglich.

Auf Grund der geringen zur Verfügung stehenden Mittel des DAAD sowie unter Berücksichtigung der sparsamen Bewirtschaftung dieser Mittel wird eine Beihilfe zur Förderung des Studienabschlusses zunächst für die Dauer von 3 Monaten zu je 250,- Euro gewährt werden.

Bewerbungen können bis zum 25.11.2011 bei der Beratungsstelle für internationale Studierende (Susanne Skipiol, P214) eingereicht werden.

Hierzu sind die folgenden Formulare auszufüllen: Fragebogen
Stellungnahme des betreuenden Professoren/der betreuenden Professorin
Eidesstattliche Erklärung über weitere Förderungen
Einkommenserklärung

Diese Formulare müssen ausgefüllt und unterschrieben eingereicht werden. Eine Zusendung vorab per Mail (skipiol(at)folkwang-uni.de) ist möglich, allerdings müssen unterschriebene Unterlagen nachgereicht werden.

The team of Folkwang International wishes you a wonderful Christmas time! We will see each other in January!

Ziel: Vorrangiges Ziel von Studienabschlussbeihilfen ist es, ausländischen Studierenden, die ohne eigenes Verschulden in Not geraten sind, durch finanzielle Unterstützung die Konzentration auf ihr Studium und den Studienabschluss zu ermöglichen.
Voraussetzung für eine Förderung ist, dass die Studierenden gute Leistungen erbracht haben und ein erfolgreicher Studienabschluss im Laufe eines Jahres (spätestens im Wintersemester 2012/2013) zu erwarten ist.
Förderdauer: Die Studienabschlussbeihilfe kann für max. sechs Monate vergeben werden; eine Verlängerung bis max. 12 Monate ist in Ausnahmefällen möglich.

Auf Grund der geringen zur Verfügung stehenden Mittel des DAAD sowie unter Berücksichtigung der sparsamen Bewirtschaftung dieser Mittel wird eine Beihilfe zur Förderung des Studienabschlusses zunächst für die Dauer von 3 Monate zu je 250,- Euro gewährt. Die Gesamtsumme in Höhe von 750,- Euro wird zu Beginn des Sommersemesters an die Stipendiaten überwiesen.

!!! Informationen zur Bewerbung stehen unter der zweiten Ausschreibung !!!

Aus diesen Mitteln kann die Folkwang Universität der Künste für das kommende Sommersemester 2012 fünf Stipendien mit Betreuungsleistung an ausländische Studierende vergeben:

Stipendien mit Betreuungsleistung
Ziel: Stipendien mit Betreuungsleistung sollen die Betreuung ausländischer Studierender verbessern, indem die Stipendiaten Betreuungsaufgaben oder ähnliche dem internationalen Austausch dienliche Leistungen erbringen.
Voraussetzung für eine Förderung ist die aktive Mitarbeit der Stipendiaten (im Umfang von durchschnittlich 2-4 Stunden pro Woche) in der Betreuung internationaler Studierender.
Förderdauer: Auf Grund der geringen zur Verfügung stehenden Mittel des DAAD sowie unter Berücksichtigung der sparsamen Bewirtschaftung dieser Mittel werden die Stipendien mit Betreuungsleistung zunächst für 2 Monate zu je 250,- Euro gewährt. Die Gesamtsumme in Höhe von 500,- Euro wird zu Beginn des Sommersemesters an die Stipendiaten überwiesen.
