Incorporated Society of Help for Foreign Students

The aim of the registered association “Haus,” founded in 1994, is to help international students of the Martin Luther University, who are in financial distress. Funds are collected from membership fees and donations. After verification of the student's situation, the financial help is administered at short notice and unbureaucratically, for example by temporary payment of rents, health insurance, and subsistence money prior to intermediate and final exams, etc.
