Description

Study Scholarships are awarded to highly qualified graduate students of all disciplines to provide the opportunity to study in Germany or complete a postgraduate or Master's degree course and obtain a degree at a German university or institution.

Applicants are expected to have a well-defined study or research project that makes a stay in Germany essential. Preference will be given to applicants who have either been admitted to a German host institution for the desired degree course or can prove that they have established contact with a host institution. Applicants in the arts, humanities and social sciences should have a very good command of German.

Graduate study scholarships are granted for one academic year (10 months) with the possibility of a one-year extension for students in Master's degree programs to complete a full degree course in Germany.
