    Information on the Emergency Fund

    Due to the financial hardship of many students, EMU and the AStA offer costfree social counselling and the crisis fund. Further information can be found here.

    Promotion of research projects from students

    The Rectorate of the WWU supports innovative and scientific projects initiated and carried out by students (including doctoral students) with up to 5,000.00 euros. It is important, among other things, that these projects are distinguished from degree qualifying measures and other academic achievements. The age limit is 27 years.
