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 denominational/religious, cultural and national backgrounds.
The scholarships give students the opportunity to study for a Bachelor degree 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 Educational background resp. Academic record, who are highly interested in Theology and Intercultural work. Preference is given to applicants, who without a scholarship may face unsolvable financial problems.
