At the GF-H educational guidance counselling, refugees and late re-settlers can apply for acceptance to a sponsorship programme, in accordance with “Richtlinien Garantiefonds Hochschulbereich (RL-GF-H)”. Applicants can also register ONLINE or by completing a printed version of the GF-H-form (and submitting it by mail or fax).
Acceptance to the sponsorship programme is only possible in combination with educational guidance counselling and educational planning. The sponsorship application must be submitted no later than two years after immigration to Germany. Refugees whose status acknowledgement procedure lasted for two years or longer can also apply for a sponsorship within the first year after recognition of their refugee status.
Acceptance to the sponsorship programme must take place before the applicant reaches the age of 30; in general, sponsorship will then expire after 30 months of training/education.
