The student support fund Siegen Studienförderfonds Siegen e.V. aims to supports talented students at the University of Siegen. A part of their support programme is aimed at offering assistance to financially needy students. Recipients get a total grant of 2,500 Euros paid out over two semesters in two payments of 1,250 Euros. In exceptional cases the support may be extended for more than a year. The programme is aimed at placing students in jobs in sanitation, heating and air conditioning/ventilation (SKH) both inside and outside of the university after the stipend is over.
