The Hannover Science Initiative provides explanatory videos on the topic of student financing that will help you get an initial overview of your options:

The so called Studentenwerk Hannover also has a lot of important and helpful information for you on its website:

In most cases it is not possible to finance a stay without a student job. In Hannover and at the Hochschule Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts there is a large offer of student jobs.
Various websites can be useful to you in your search for a job, e.g.:
Jobbörse der Bundesagentur für Arbeit
Jobmensa: Jobbörse für Studenten
The Initiative “Initiative Wissenschaft Hannover" also offers a helpful video on this topic:

The so called “Studentenwerk” Hannover has also compiled further information and contacts for you here.
Students at Risk - Hilde Domin Programme
The programme serves to support students and doctoral candidates from across the globe, who are at risk of being formally or de facto denied educational or other rights in their country of origin, and to provide these students and doctoral candidates with an opportunity to begin or complete a study or research degree at a higher education institution in Germany. Students and doctoral candidates nominated and accepted under the programme will be enrolled in degree courses of any personal subject choice and according to individual qualifications and receive a scholarship sufficient to cover the necessary costs incurred in the course of their study resp. research stay.
Details can be found here:
Interested students cannot apply directly to the DAAD, but must be nominated by the university. The nomination is done by the International Team of the Advisory Service (contact: email@example.com). Please contact us if you are interested.
Another possibility to finance your studies, at least partially, are scholarships.
The “Initiative Wissenschaft Hannover” has also created an overview of scholarship opportunities.
At Hochschule Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts, so called “WIR/Deutschland” scholarships are also awarded annually to students at the university. Here you can find more information about the WIR/Deutschland STIPENDIUM.
Another option is the Landesstipendium Niedersachsen. This is a one-time scholarship in the amount of 500.00 euros. (If you apply for the WIR scholarship, this application also counts for an application for the Landesstipendium Niedersachsen).
For international students, scholarships are also awarded each year at HsH in cooperation with the DAAD for special commitment or as graduation assistance. We share information about this via our Moodle group for international students and social media, as well as via our website.
