How to Make an International Payment with Flywire

Your ways of financing

Every year, the SRH University of Applied Sciences in NRW awards an ALLSTAY scholarship exclusively for its students. The ALLSTAY scholarship supports students with above-average performance with 300 euros per month until the end of their standard period of study*. Half of the grant is paid by the federal government and the other half by a private donor. The ALLSTAY scholarship is awarded each winter semester and is paid retroactively to the start of studies.

*The sponsor must pay the grant for at least one year. Thereafter, it may withdraw from the sponsorship if the scholarship holder's performance is not adequate.

Application requirements:

  • Exclusively students of the SRH University of Applied Sciences in NRW who are in their 1st or 2nd semester in the winter semester.

The Scholarship Programme Act specifies the further criteria for funding as follows:

  • For first-year students: the average grade of the A-level and individual grades or qualifications relevant to the chosen subject. For students who are already enrolled: academic achievements to date, in particular ECTS points.
  • For Master's students, the final grade of the previous study programme also counts.
  • Special potential of the applicants: achievements such as awards and prizes, a previous professional activity, internships, extracurricular, social, university political or political commitment and/or participation in religious societies, associations or clubs.
  • Special personal or family circumstances: chronic illnesses and disabilities, raising children, especially as a single parent, caring for close relatives, involvement in family businesses, gainful employment during studies or migration background.

This is what you should do to apply for the ALLSTAY Scholarship:

To apply, please send the following documents in a PDF file by email to with the subject "Allstay Scholarship"

  • Letter of motivation (your interest in studying, your social commitment, your motives, etc.)
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Proof of previous achievements (certificates, proof of voluntary work, etc.)
    Please note: In order to ensure error-free verification of the documents submitted, they will be accepted exclusively in German or English.

The application deadline is 31.10.2023. The grant will be paid retroactively to the start of the studies.

After the application deadline has ended, the university will inform you whether or not you are invited to a selection interview. A special committee will then select students for the scholarship based on the selection interviews and applications. The final decision is made after an internal review process which may take some time.

  1. Online application (CV with maximum length of one page, motivational letter with a maximum length of half a page, a current overview of your grades if available or otherwise your most recent school leaving certificate). 
  2. Pre-selection by selection committee.
  3. Invitations for selection interviews.
  4. Final selection by steering committee.

You can also apply for a scholarship outside of SRH University. There are numerous scholarship programmes and it is definitely worth a try!
In most cases, a letter of motivation and a CV are sufficient for your application. It's best to apply early and right at the beginning of your studies. Criteria are usually the following: Commitment, political activities, academic success, family background, sporting success.

We can recommend the following scholarships:

You can work a part-time job or a holiday job alongside your studies. If you work a maximum of 20 hours per week alongside your studies, your student status is maintained (other regulations apply at weekends and in the evenings) and you are exempt from health, nursing care and unemployment insurance. For pension insurance, however, you are only exempt from insurance if you have a mini-job of up to 450 Euros per month or a short-term job.
Basically, you can distinguish between a part-time job during your studies and a working student job. With a working student job, you can work in a company or as a student assistant at a university. The working student privilege allows you to work up to 20 hours per week without having to pay working student health and nursing care insurance.
