7 \\ Information on Scholarships

There are many ways to finance your studies in Germany. International students can apply for scholarships to numerous institutions. Please note, that our university does not offer scholarships, but you can ask various organisations, institutes, and official foundations. To find out which programme is right for you, we recommend you try the DAAD’s scholarship database.

Furthermore, please also check the following scholarship opportunities offered by different organizations and institutions to international students in Germany:

Especially political foundations provide students with financial aid as well as incredible networks.

The DAAD website offers general information on scholarships.  

Deadlines and further information are listed on the respective websites. 

Earning extra money by working part-time or applying for an internship

Apart from applying for a scholarship, there are other possibilities to earn some extra money as a student. As our programme has seminars Friday afternoons and Saturdays only, the other way to support yourself while earning international work experience, is to benefit from Bonn’s international character. Bonn might not sound like it, but it is an international hub. We are home to several UN-agency HQs, as well as hundreds of NGOs and international organisations. For more information, please check the Website of Bonn International.
