International students look at funding documents in the stairwell of a university.

New books, paying for food, high rents – Students have high living expenses. Therefore, we would like to help you with that. International students, academics and researchers can apply for various, different scholarships at a large number of organisations. Here you can find information on various kinds of DAAD funding for students, graduates and postdocs as well as on funding offered by other selected organisations.

Additionally, many universities and regions in Germany have regional programmes. Under certain conditions, students from other countries may also benefit from the German state’s offers for their citizens.

BE AWARE! Many scholarships require long-term preparation and a very early application! We recommend that you start planning your study or research stay about one year before you wish to travel to Germany!
