Fully funded scholarships in Germany
Studying in Germany is one of the best decisions you can make in 2022 as there are many scholarships you can choose from. Germany has one of the affordable tertiary institutions in Europe and has an impeccable international reputation. Germany offers you an outstanding education that will pave the way to your future career.
Compared to other European countries, the cost of living in Germany is quite reasonable. The prices for food, accommodation, clothing, cultural events, are basically in line with the EU average. You will need around 850 euros per month to cover your living expenses.
The tuition at German universities is very low, and some universities charge no tuition fee at all. This is because most German universities are funded by the government. Normally students in bachelor’s programmes don’t have to pay tuition fees. Low tuition fees are charged, however, for master’s degree programmes. Germany offers English-taught programs, particularly at the postgraduate level.
Here are some of the scholarships being offered to international students who are studying in Germany.
- Heinrich Boll Foundation scholarship – Undergraduates, graduates and post-graduate students
The Heinrich Böll Foundation grants scholarships to approximately 1400 undergraduates, graduates, and doctoral students of all subjects and nationalities per year, who are pursuing their degree at universities, Universities of Applied Sciences or Universities of Arts.
The Foundation expects scholarship recipients to have excellent academic records, to be socially and politically engaged, and to have an active interest in the basic values of the foundation: ecology and sustainability, democracy and human rights, self determination and justice.
2. University of Berlin – No IELTS, €300 monthly, Tuition- free
