If you are interested in economic issues and would like to gain additional qualifications for the international job market, the Haniel scholarship programme is just right for you. The prerequisite is a degree; the field of study is not specified.

The programme consists of postgraduate studies abroad and an internship of at least two months. Both have to be organised by the applicants themselves in advance. In addition to classic projects such as MBA or LL.M. programmes, people with their own ideas are also very much in demand. In the past, for example, an architect has already been sponsored for a Master's in Real Estate Development at Columbia University in New York, or an Arabist who completed a Master's in Economics in International Development in Cairo.

The Studienstiftung has been running the programme since 1991 together with the Haniel Foundation, which also finances it.
