Apply for Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung Scholarship Awards for International Students. The Scholarship Department of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung awards financial grants to highly qualified undergraduate and doctoral students from Germany and abroad who evidence high levels of social and political engagement.
In granting scholarships, the Stiftung seeks to counteract the social, political, and gender discrimination prevalent in our society and therefore gives preference to applications from women, students of non-academic and migrant backgrounds, the socially needy, and people with disabilities who demonstrate comparable achievements and commitment. Applications from undergraduate and doctoral students from scientific and technical disciplines are actively encouraged, as well as from graduates of technical colleges.
- Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung’s new scholarship programme designed to support and accompany school students from non-academic backgrounds in gaining admission to and completing a university degree. Students without an academic background are significantly less likely to apply to university, and are thus underrepresented on German campuses. In response, Lux like Studium provides financial support from the first semester onwards as a way to facilitate access to institutions of higher education.
- Funding is available to BA and MA students from all disciplines and all state-approved institutions of higher education who meet the requirements sets out in §8 of the German Federal Law on Education and Training (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz, BAföG), namely students holding a German passport and immigrants with prospects of residing in Germany permanently. Limited funding is also available for students from other EU member states. The duration of the grant and the amount of funding provided are based on BAföG regulations. Scholarships can be awarded beginning from the second semester of studies.
- The Scholarship Department awards grants to domestic and foreign PhD students from all disciplines (except medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine). As a rule, funding lasts for two years; this may be extended for a period of six months no more than two times in justified cases. More information
