Greetings. I am bethiano, from Nigeria. I have had this German dream for four years now. Since 2014 I have been applying to German universities. I get a minimum of 3 admission offers every year I apply, but I have not been able to live this dream of gaining a German education due to insufficient funds.
This year I have received two admission offers already, for master of science programmes at the university of Göttingen (Hydrogeology and Environmental Geoscience, HEG) and university of Freiburg (Environmental Science: Bioenergy and Biomaterials) which begins this winter semester, september/october 2016.
I do not want to lose this opportunity any more, I am afraid my dreams are dying in my hands. I had to cry out.
Germany has given me this opportunity to gain world class knowledge, comparable or even higher than what is obtainable in ivy league universities in America, all tuition free. What more could one be asking for?
I appreciate what Germany as a nation have done to give the world access to German technology and knowledge via education. In my own case, coming from a developing country where the economic situation is hopeless, with no sense of direction and purpose. Surely, scenarios are different, world's are apart, raising 8640 euros is a big deal for me.
As part of requirements for visa, the German consulate demands proof of funding which could be any of the following;
1) 8640 euros blocked in an account with Deutsche Bank.
2) scholarship from any organisation in Europe
3) letter of sponsorship from a German resident/citizen.
Dear expat members, I am searching for local charity/non profit/ donor organisations in Göttingen, Freiburg or the entire Germany that could sponsor my education .
I want to write them explaining my ordeal and frustration and hope for the best.
Please, kindly assist me with their website, email or surface mail address.
Should you have any other information to help my course, don't hesitate to share with me.
I will be glad.
