Information about social security contributions and taxes

Social security contributions

For scholarship holders, the grant is free of contributions to the social security system in Germany. As HITS is not responsible, the scholarship holder himself has to obtain health insurance, preferably in advance.
There is a good offer by MLP for foreign students which you can apply for from abroad: Health insurance. If you are interested please contact Mr. Ritter (E-Mail: steffen.ritter@mlp.de; phone: 0171-3854781).

Taxes

For scholarship holders, the granted fund is exempt from taxes in Germany. It may be the case, though, that taxes are due in your home country.
