Students doing the M.A. programme Intercultural Theology can be awarded a FIT/ELM Scholarship. The FIT/ELM scholarships are only awarded at the beginning of each degree programme, i.e. for the winter semester.

  • Scholarships from Winter Semester 2024/25:
    Applications for scholarships from winter semester 2024/25 (with effect from 01.10.2024) are no longer possible. The application deadline has already expired.
  • General Information:
    The FIT scholarships are awarded by the Evangelical-Lutheran Mission in Lower Saxony (ELM) and FIT Hermannsburg. With these scholarships, both institutions want to foster advanced studies in intercultural theology and promote intercultural / interreligious and ecumenical cooperation between people of different religious / denominational, cultural and national backgrounds.

    The scholarships give students the opportunity to study for a higher degree and to enhance their academic knowledge, while developing professional skills and acquiring intercultural competencies. Scholarship holders are expected to live in Hermannsburg and partake in the activities of the international community on FIT campus.

    The scholarships are awarded to students with an outstanding academic record, who are actively engaged in intercultural work. Preference is given to applicants, who without a scholarship may face unsolvable financial problems.

    Our scholarships are granted in line with the equal opportunities policy of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Hanover and in accordance with national laws regarding equal rights. A candidate with disabilities will be prioritised, if equally qualified.


Furthermore, students of the Master programme have the opportunity to be supported by a "Deutschlandstipendium". However, this scholarship is not awarded by FIT, but by the University of Göttingen.
