A well-ordered life is like climbing a tower; the view halfway up is
better than the view from the base, and it steadily becomes
finer as the horizon expands William Lyon Phelps

Scholarships

The DAAD (German Academic  Exchange Service) provides an overview of  various funding opportunities for students, graduate students and researchers.  For some of these scholarships, the application must already be submitted from the home country. The DAAD database can be searched for scholarships and funding opportunities using various search criteria.

Europa-Universität Flensburg does not award scholarships for study purposes, only the Stibet DAAD scholarship.

STIBET Scholarships

The DAAD offers the universities a scholarship programme (STIBET) with funds from the Federal Foreign Office.

The scholarship programme gives universities the opportunity to award scholarships from DAAD funds to foreign students at their own discretion. Both undergraduate (Bachelor) and postgraduate (Master) students can be supported.
Students must be enrolled for regular studies with the aim of obtaining one of the above-mentioned degrees (exception: contact scholarships). Scholarship funds may be used for the following three types of scholarships:

Graduation Scholarships (only for international degree seeking students): The primary aim of grants for graduation is to enable foreign students who are in need through no fault of their own to concentrate on their studies and graduation through financial support. The prerequisite for support is that the students have performed well and can be expected to successfully complete their studies within one year.

Scholarships for particularly committed students (only for international degree seeking students): The prerequisite for support is that the students have good  achievements, but are also distinguished by outstanding commitment in the international context at the university.

Contact scholarships (only for exchange students): Contact scholarships give universities the opportunity to award scholarships to foreign students, especially from partner universities, thus strengthening their international partnerships.
Contact scholarships can only be awarded to students from partner universities or universities with which partnership agreements are planned.

Application documents:

  1. Completed and signed application form, including letter of motivation for the application in the selected programme
  2. Tabular curriculum vitae
  3. Grade certificates of the Central Examinations Office, for doctoral students: Copy of the Master's degree certificate
