Subsidies SoSe19

Unfortunately there has been another technical problem due to which the subsidies have not been transferred yet. The problem is now fixed and you should receive your subsidies for summer semester 2019 around the beginning of next week. We apologise for the delay!

Please remember that applications for winter semester 2019/20 are due by July 31. (There’s a grace period of 14 days after that, but if you choose to use it, please try to make sure that your applications are complete with all necessary documents.)

Payment of subsidies for KHB

Dear applicants from KHB,

Due to administrative circumstances beyond our power, we are unable to send out the notifications and transfer the subsidies for summer semester 2019 on time. Please be patient a little longer, and if being able to pay your semester fees is a concern, please contact your matriculation office to ask for an extension of the deadline.

Also, please remember that applications for winter semester 2019/20 are due by the end of July, or August 14th including the extended deadline.

Begin of application period 2019/20

The new application period has begun and you can find the new forms here or at our office.

The application period ends July 31, with an extension of two weeks (August 14). If you make use of the extension, please try to include all the necessary supporting documents. Students newly matriculated at HU/KHB may apply in the first six weeks following matriculation.

End of the Application Period

The application period (including a two week grace period) ended on March 14th, 2019.

Now we only accept applications only in case of the following exceptions:

  • If you are newly enrolled in SoSe 19 (e.g. students in the first semester at Humboldt-University or first semester Master) please apply within six weeks after your enrolment.
  • In case of reasons that you are not responsible for (e.g. due to illness etc.). Sometimes it is necessary to enclose a proof with your application (e.g. doctor’s statement).

If you are unsure if one of the above applies to you or if/how you can prove either please do contact us personally or per telephone during our opening hours.

Late applications without any information about the reasons for the delay will be sent back.

Notifications winter semester 2018/19

We’ve sent out the notifications for everyone from HU who applied within the regular application period for winter semester 2018/19. The subsidies will be transfered within the next 1-2 weeks, and if you asked to receive your subsidy in cash you will be able to pick it up during our office hours starting tomorrow (23.1.)

Late applications (from newly matriculated students etc.) will be processed now and you will receive your notifications and subsidies as soon as we’re done with your application, probably within a month.

We’re still working on the applications from students of KHB and will try to finish them and get the notifications out as soon as possible.

Please remember that the application period for summer semester 2019 has started and you can apply until February 28th (with a further grace period of 14 days, i.e. until March 14th).

Delay of decision letters

We are sorry to inform you, that the decision letters regarding subsidiaries from the social funds are going to be delayed this year. This happened due to the personnel policy of HU during the last year and and a currently high sick leave in our team. We hope to send out the letters next week Thursday, 17th Jan 2019.

Information about the pay out of the subsidiaries will follow.

Delayed notifications WiSe 2018/19

Unfortunately the notifications about your subsidies for winter semester 2018/19 will be delayed. Due to the university administration’s new policies regarding student employees we’ve had to deal with staff shortages and a large amount of additional efforts trying to resolve them, so as a result we were unable to make our usual December deadline. We are now planning on sending the notifications in mid-January 2019 and will try our best to transfer the subsidies before the end of the re-registration period (Rückmeldefrist), despite all these unnecessary hurdles. If that inconveniences you in any way, we are very sorry – please feel free to complain to the university administration.
