Scholarship funding

Get your PhD sponsored by a foundation.

Scholarships are one way of financing your thesis project. In addition to the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes (German Academic Scholarship Foundation) and PhD scholarships offered by the foundations of political parties, there are a number of specific funding opportunities tailored to particular applicant profiles. These can be scholarships that focus on specific content or a field of study, or scholarships that focus on specific groups of applicants (e.g. by social or ethnic origin). Before you embark on the sometimes time-consuming application procedures, you should check whether you meet the requirements. Careful research is worth the while.
