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.

Scholarships are to be used exclusively for study programs or postdoctorates that are structured and designed in such a way so as to help the (postdoctorate) student quickly achieve a good exam result or PhD.

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.
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.
The foundation supports students worldwide in pursuing their educational goals. The scholarship program is in principle open to students from all disciplines. Economics and natural sciences are preferred fields of study.
We do not fund travel expenses for international trips, internships, conferences, research visits, or other short-term events.

How we provide assistance

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

  • Monthly payments
  • One-time payments
  • Interest-free loans

When we provide grants

For bachelor’s degree programs, the earliest date for applying is after the successful completion of two semesters. For master’s degrees or doctorates, the application may be filed when the program of study commences. For other degree programs, an application may be filed no earlier than after two semesters have been completed.
