Number of scholarships to award
- tuition fee reduction
International students and doctoral researchers have the opportunity to apply to the International Office for a study grant. Limited funding from the State of Bavaria and the DAAD is available for this purpose.
All grants can be awarded for up to two semesters.
- The scholarship is open to international students and doctoral researchers.
- Unfortunately, first-semester students cannot be funded, i.e. applications cannot be submitted until the 2nd semester of study for funding starting in the 3rd semester of study. Decisive for the evaluation of the application are above all academic achievements from the previous semester, e.g. in the case of applications for the summer semester, grades from the previous summer semester; in the case of applications for the winter semester, grades from the previous winter semester (at least 20 credit points in total), a letter of recommendation from a university lecturer, and social engagement.
- Only complete applications can be processed; incomplete applications must be rejected immediately. As a rule, submission of documents at a later date not possible!
