Variety enriches the education infrastructure this is also the motto for the new scholarship of MAWISTA. That’s why we would like to offer the scholarship to a person studying abroad with a child.


One semester, or even the complete study abroad, is going to be more and more popular and gives many students the opportunity to let their dreams of living abroad come true and also to get some advantages for their future career.

But the study, a foreign country and 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. 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 a person with a child who wants to study abroad or is already studying in a foreign country. The focus is on your history/career, your personality and your personal background but not on the grade point average or the duration of the study. Tell us why you should be the one who should be promoted and how you are going to manage your daily life.

We are 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 us. If you think, that you are the one, send your application now!
