What we are doing

Fundraising Campaign: "Geisenheim hilft! Ukraine"

In cooperation with the Geisenheim Alumni Association (VEG) and the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Hochschule Geisenheim (GFHG), Hochschule Geisenheim University has set up a donation account to raise funds to support affected (exchange) students, staff members, alumni and partner universities. Further activities, such as unbureaucratic support for affected winegrowers and employees in horticulture, landscape architecture and the beverage industry in Ukraine are also being planned.

Personal Support

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion, Hochschule Geisenheim University has been in touch with (exchange) students, staff members and partner universities in Ukraine. The university provides support and advice, for example by arranging accommodation for refugees. It has also set up a fundraising campaign to provide financial support for those affected by the war.

The Admissions Office and International Center have collected all opportunities for Ukrainian refugees who are interested in studying at Hochschule Geisenheim University. Find all information, details and contacts here.
