Federal scholarship programs

Germany Scholarship

This program was launched at state and state-approved universities in Germany in the summer semester of 2011. It is designed to support talented and high-achieving students. As well as excellent academic results, the criteria for awarding a scholarship include social commitment and special personal achievements, such as a student overcoming obstacles in his or her educational career.

Each successful candidate will receive €300 per month; €150 supplied by private sponsors and €150 by the federal government. As much as possible, the Germany Scholarship is designed to support students throughout the standard period of study. It is provided for a duration of at least two semesters. http://www.bmbf.de/en/14332.php

Hof University also offers the “Germany Scholarship” to its students. In general, the application is possible from 15th April – 31st July. The online application form and information about the list of documents required for application can be found at  http://www.hof-university.de/studierende/studienfoerderung/stipendien/deutschlandstipendium.html
