The Hildegardis Club is the oldest club for the promotion of women's studies in Germany. A portion of the funding is reserved to grant interest-free loans to doctoral candidates and students. A maximum loan amount of 10.000,00 EUR will be granted. The payment arrangements can thereby be determined individually. Repayment shall be made in monthly installments. This will be yearly 10 percent of the loan amount granted, but at least 120 EUR per month. The repayment starts with taking up employment, no later than 2 years after payment of the last installment loans.
This programme of interest-free loans is aimed at German female students and doctoral candidates from all disciplines. This scholarship is aimed exclusively at women. In addition, applicants should be of a Christian denomination.
