It’s worth searching out appropriate scholarships to help finance your studies, especially when you first start your new degree program. In addition to financial support, scholarships tend to offer other kinds of non-material support such as the chance to participate in seminar programs, mentoring, career placement assistance, and so on.
The Student Guidance and Counseling Service offers group sessions about scholarship options upon request.
During its annual Student Orientation Week, EUF also offers an informational event about German foundation scholarships. There you can talk with the EUF professors who serve as on-campus representatives of various national funding foundations, and hear from other students about the advantages of different scholarship and funding options.
As a doctoral student you can apply to Europa-Universität Flensburg for a Schleswig-Holstein state doctoral scholarship, or you can seek doctoral funding from an external agency.
