Studying at a private university offers you many advantages and is a worthwhile investment in your future. But since we know that many people cannot easily afford tuition fees, we are here to help you.
Our extensive scholarship opportunities are open to all students, offering you a wide range of funding options. In addition, you always have the opportunity to apply for external scholarships.
We have also compiled information about all other established funding options for you on this page: for example, you can find out how and where to apply for financial assistance from the German government (BAföG).
You are, of course, welcome to contact our study advisors for financial advice.
There is a wide range of scholarships available in Germany. To find out which may be relevant in your case, simply check the criteria for eligibility. The advantages of being a scholarship holder are as follows:
- You benefit from a large network of people from different disciplines
- You receive non-material support, e.g. in the form of thematic workshops, personal meetings and discussion groups
- You do not have to repay the financial support you receive
The largest scholarship providers include 13 organisations for the promotion of young talent. SRH University Heidelberg also offers scholarships.
Everyone has heard of BAföG financial aid. But do you know what requirements you need to meet in order to qualify for an interest-free loan (because that is essentially what BAföG is)? Many students assume that they are not eligible for BAföG because their parents work, for example: it is worth checking out the requirements to ensure that you have no financial worries, at least.
Studierendenwerk Stuttgart will be happy to advise you. The student services organisations are responsible for advising students on BAföG and for managing applications.
You should consider applying for a student loan or education fund if you are unable to fully finance your studies with a scholarship and/or BAföG. Unlike scholarships or BAföG, student loans must be repaid with interest. If you finance your studies with an education fund, repayment depends on your income.
