Information for Students

We are pleased to receive more than 300 German scholarships in the year 2023/2024!
What is the Deutschlandstipendium?
The Germany Scholarship at KIT includes funding in the amount of €300 per month for a period of one year.
The scholarship is paid regardless of income and parents and does not count towards the BAföG. Half of the scholarships are financed by private sponsors (companies, individuals, foundations and associations) and the other half by the federal government.
Who can apply?
Students and newcomers of all nationalities who are already enrolled at KIT or who are beginning their studies at KIT may apply. The Deutschlandstipendium supports students whose previous career leads to outstanding academic achievements. In addition to special achievements at school and/or university, the criteria for funding include social involvement, for example in associations or university politics, in church or political organisations, as well as involvement in the social environment, in the family or in a social institution. Consideration is also given to overcoming particular biographical barriers arising from family or cultural origin.
