2015 MAWISTA Scholarship for Students Studying Abroad with a Child

2015 MAWISTA Scholarship for Students Studying Abroad with a Child

Deadline: January 15, 2015

MAWISTA is now offering a new kind of scholarship to students studying abroad with a child, to support and promote them. Are you a student studying abroad with a child? If you think, that you are the one, send your application now! International students with a child who are going to manage their studies in Germany also have the possibility to apply for the scholarship. MAWISTA will offer scholarships every year!


To study in a foreign country with a child is a real challenge. It doesn’t matter if you are in a partnership or if you are a single parent. Studying with a child means to have more additional stress. Mawista is looking for students who won’t give up and who would like to finish their study even with double stress (study and child) because this is very important to them.

It is a big challenge and requires a lot of organizational skills. Every student has to organize his/her studies. The student has to find a suitable flat, to pass the exams and to find a position for the practical semester. Further he has to handle the foreign language. For students with a child there is still one question left – who is going to take care of my child? This is certainly the most important question which has to be answered before going to study abroad. That means, you have to inform yourself where you can find a childcare in the place you are going to stay and how much it will cost. For MAWISTA it is very important to promote especially young people with a child who decided to study abroad.


  • The winner of the scholarship will receive a monthly scholarship of 500 Euro during a 12-month period. That way, you will have more time to take care of your child.
