Scholarships available in Germany for international students

November 18th, 2023

Germany is a popular study-abroad destination, not least because 16 German states abolished tuition fees for both domestic and international undergraduate students at all public universities in 2014.

However, even if you are eligible for free tuition in Germany, there will still be other costs you’ll need to consider if you want to study there, including accommodation, food and flights.

Luckily, there are extensive scholarship opportunities in Germany for international students. Below is a list of some of the scholarship offerings in Germany to help you begin your search. It is by no means a comprehensive list, so be sure to do your own research into what you may be eligible for.

Individual universities and courses will often have their own specific funding opportunities as well, so it’s worth contacting your chosen institution directly for more information.
