The purpose of the scholarship program is to support students with outstanding academic records showing exceptional merit. All undergraduate and graduate students (Bachelor’s and Master’s level) – except doctoral students – of Freie Universität Berlin can submit an application for the Deutschlandstipendium. With only few exceptions, funding is only possible until you reach the end of the standard period of study (Regelstudienzeit) of your major subject.
As this is a merit-based scholarship program, scholarships will be awarded by the selection committee primarily based on academic merit. Additionally, the following criteria will be considered:
High School and University/College Certificates and Transcripts of Academic Records:
Applicants with grades from a non-German grading system: documents indicating your grade converted into the German grading system. Applicants will have to enter their grade converted into the German grading system.
A copy of the official German translation is required if documents are not issued in German or English.
