Daka e.V.—Berlin Student Loan Fund (Studentische Dahrlehenskasse Berlin)

The Berlin Student Loan Fund is a nonprofit association that was founded by Berlin students on July 21, 1950. The association sees itself as a student self-help organization focused on improving the educational possibilities for students who are enrolled at one of its member universities. Students can turn to the Student Loan Fund and, through the association’s support, be able to concentrate on successfully completing their studies. As a community effort from universities, professors, and students, as well as dedicated individuals and businesses, the Student Loan Fund has been able to pursue and further its charitable concept for many years.

II Sponsorship

Information for Sponsors

Sponsor clever minds with the Germany Scholarship

The principle: One half from the German Federal Government, the other half from you
The German National Scholarship Program enables students to receive a scholarship of €300 per month. Of this amount, €150 per month comes from private sources and €150 is provided by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). A one-year scholarship consists, therefore, of a donation amount starting at 1,800 Euro. The International Psychoanalytic University Berlin participates in this program.

Who will be sponsored?
Particularly capable and dedicated students will be sponsored. Beyond that, the IPU Berlin places particular importance on the consideration of other factors that make up a dedicated personality. This means that study achievements as well as community engagement, individual initiative, and special personal circumstances, such as family care or immigrant status, are considered in the selection process.
