Our Scholarship Programme is open to foreign students and postgraduates at German universities. Applicants must have an excellent final degree and an academic goal which suggest that they will make an important contribution to scientific research. All applicants are subject to a preliminary selection process under which the applicants' qualifications are checked and the chance for a successful application is assessed carefully. 

Our minimum entry requirements are:

  • an acceptance from a German university to a postgraduate course or a Ph.D. programme
  • and the ability to communicate fluently in German, both orally and in written format.

We offer material support and encouragement to outstanding young academics, who are keen to be active members of a liberal network and are interested in exchange with like-minded professors, students, and alumni. ​
