The Studienförderfonds Siegen e. V. would like to encourage and support students with their studies, regardless of their origin and financial situation.
The goal is to promote students financially and, ideally, in their academic and personal development. We want to foster motivated talents - at the same time, they are to establish a direct contact with the regional enterprises during their studies.

In addition to financial support, the Studienförderfonds Siegen e. V. also provides offers which contribute to the personality development and career or job finding of the scholarship holders. This is the ideational support. It includes visits to cultural events, companies, specialist lectures, application training, business talks, excursions, scholarship meetings and the like.

The funding program for students consists of financial support and ideational support. Scholarships are awarded either on the basis of very good study performance (in the case of freshmen, due to very good school results) or because of financial need (scholarships of the Studienförderfonds Siegen e.V. only)


At present, students can be supported by two forms of scholarship. You can find more information in our flyer.
