Funding through a scholarship

There are several opportunities to partially finance your studies through a scholarship.
Read on to find out if you're eligible:


BayHost scholarship fund

BayHost is the Bavarian Academic Centre for Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. All details about scholarships programmes are on the website.

BayBIDS scholarship fund

BayBIDS is supported by Bavaria University (registered society) and the Bavarian Ministry of Science, Research and Art. The project originated in 2008, with the initiative coming from the German Academic Exchange Service and the partner-school initiative of the Foreign Office. The project was set up to promote cooperation between German schools abroad and German partner-schools with Bavarian universities.

BayBIDS regularly awards scholarships to graduates of German schools abroad, who begin their studies in Bavaria. Visits to partner schools abroad are also financed. See the website for all details.

Bafög financial support programme

This financial support programme is for German or international students who are fully-integrated and have their long-term perspectives in Germany (e.g. European citizens or students with long term residential visas). Grants are based on personal assets, wages earned and parental or partner income.
More information can be found (in German) at

The Begabtenförderungswerke Endowment

The Begabtenförderungswerke Endowment consists of many different organisations in Germany that award scholarships to young, gifted and talented students. It supports bright minds that seek to bring change to society.

It targets German, EU and other international students who are entitled to permanent residence in Germany within the framework of Article 8 in the Federal Training Assistance Act, otherwise known as BAföG.

The applicant student must be enrolled at a public or state-recognized institution of higher education in Germany.

Deutschlandstipendium scholarship fund

The Deutschlandstipendium at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology provides students with approx. 3,600 Euros per year for approx. 80 individual scholarships.

Students who excel in their studies and demonstrate a high level of academic achievement will be selected for the scholarship. Furthermore, special personal and family circumstances will be taken into account.  Extracurricular activities such as social and student involvement are also taken into consideration in the selection process. The scholarship is not based on student income or on the income of the parents. It is not calculated based on BAföG, and there are no social insurance contributions to be made. Half of the funding is provided by companies and private donors; the other half by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
