KUMMUNI Scholarship Program

Start your story with us ®

Living abroad as a student, especially as an international student in Germany, is not always an easy task. We understand the financial implications that come with settling in Germany. International students must have about 10,000 Euro in a blocked account which they receive around 700 euro of it back every month. Except one is on a fully funded scholarship, student accommodation costs, feeding, and other daily expenses can make a student financially uncertain before the end of the month.

KUMMUNI®, as a coliving agency in Berlin, therefore seeks to ease the way as much as possible for international students. 

With the KUMMUNI Scholarship Program, we provide a reduced housing cost for international students to help them chase their dream. The KUMMUNI scholarship program is targeted at providing students with affordable student apartments with little or no costs. 

We have different scholarship programs available in KUMMUNI.
