Friedrich Ebert Stiftung makes available scholarships to both Germans and overseas international students who wish to undertake Bachelors's, Masters or Ph.D. studies in German universities or technical colleges.


  • Scholars receive up to €744 per month. In addition, there is a monthly flat-rate study fee of €300 euros, which all scholars can freely use.

  • The Foundation supports stays abroad during the funding period – through subsidies for travel expenses, tuition fees and international health insurance, especially for study or research stays, language courses and internships of up to 12 months.
