Foundations

Under certain circumstances, it is possible that you may get financial support through scholarships when you apply for it. Usually you will need extraordinary achievements in your studies.

You do not need to be member of a political party in order to get support. Foundations place value on supporting people who are not only interested in their money but also in their work and who would like to participate in it. Scholarship money is similar in any foundation and is comparable to the amount of money German students may get through the Federal Law on Support in Education (BaFöG). The amount depends on the income and wealth of your parents and yourself. Generally, every student of a German university can apply for a scholarship, regardless of citizenship or field of study. It is common to apply by the initiative of one's own.
