Scholarship Providers

Information about the benefits according to the Federal Education and Training Assistance Act (BAföG).
Citizens of the European Union, refugees as well as migrants with a settlement permit can receive BAföG as financial support during their studies, if appropriate requirements such as age and suitability for the desired education and training as well as private income and assets are met. Further information on citizenship is available at: https://www.bafög.de/de/-8-staatsangehoerigkeit-224.php.

Students with a residence permit to study are not entitled to BAföG.
