Support for Ukrainian Refugees

To support Ukrainian students and academics, Hochschule Fresenius has set up a project group to identify and implement aid measures. As a first important measure, Hochschule Fresenius is awarding specially funded study places to students who had to flee Ukraine and want to continue their studies in Germany.
