Solidarity fund

The Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe has established together with partner a solidarity fund. This provides an annual amount of EUR 10,000 to support international students who are temporarily in need. International students who are enrolled at a university in Karlsruhe or Pforzheim and are temporarily in need through no fault of their own and for whom funds from other funding programs are not available can receive a grant. An application can be submitted at the International Student Center (foyer of the Adenauerring canteen, in the beratungsWERK). Further information and references to the required documents can be found in the application form on the right.

A committee decides on the applications. According to § 4 of the currently guidelines, this is made up of
  • a representative of the Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe
  • a representative of the International Students Office of KIT (IStO)
  • a representative of the International Office of the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences
  • a representative of the Protestant Student Community Karlsruhe (ESG)
  • a representative of the Catholic University Community Karlsruhe (KHG) and Pforzheim (KHG)
  • a speaker for international affairs, social affairs or equal opportunities of the AStA KIT.
