There are many opportunities for financial support through scholarships in Germany.

Scholarship culture in Germany is different from Anglo-Saxon Countries. Scholarships are not as extensively available as, for example, in the UK or USA countries. However, there are a number of organisations, foundations and institutions, which provide scholarships to students. Besides financial support there are also non-monetary scholarships. These scholarships offer exclusive invitations to workshops, lectures or conferences in Germany. In many cases, monetary and non-monetary scholarships are combined.

DAAD Scholarship

The German Academic Exchange Service DAAD offers several funding programs for students. It also provides an extensive scholarship database in which many more scholarships from third-party providers can be found. For short-term exchange stays in Baden-Wurttemberg, scholarships can be obtained through the Erasmus program if you are coming from a European partner university. For students from the US, the Fulbright Commission offers various scholarships.
