Within the framework of the DAAD program, STIBET I, the International Office awards scholarships to particularly involved students from funds provided by the Federal Foreign Office. These scholarships are targeted towards international students at RWTH Aachen, who distinguish themselves through involvement with an international context in their course of study and/or at the university.

Funding is provided for six months during the summer semester and comprises a monthly stipend of 300 Euros.

A selection committee in the International Office selects recipients based on achievements during studies and particular involvement in an international context at the university.
