In Germany, the support of talented students and PhD candidates is considered to be of high value both to society and the education system.
The federation, the state of Baden-Württemberg, universities, various companies, foundations, associations and other institutes offer talented students and PhD candidates financial support in the form of grants. As a rule, this support does not need to be repaid after completion of the course of study or when the PhD thesis has been completed, however it may be subject to various obligations (for example internship or writing a dissertation at a company).
You can obtain information concerning support for graduate students in the state from the universities in Baden-Württemberg which offer PhD study.
The federation and private donors support committed and talented students with the German grant. In Baden-Württemberg, around 60 universities are currently participating in the scheme.
Concrete information concerning the requirements, allocation procedure and deadline for applying for the financial support and grants can be obtained from the donors.
