Full Scholarships for International Students in Germany

Applications for the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Scholarship Program 2021 are now open. The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung awards scholarships to international master students and graduates in order to enable study and research at universities in Germany. The deadline is on 15 July 2020.

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) is a political foundation committed to fostering democracy and the rule of law, to implementing social and market-economic structures and to promoting human rights in Europe and worldwide. The scholarships intend to actively promote intercultural dialogues, the formation of international networks as well as the internationalization of universities and science.

The scholarship program for international students is aimed at international students and graduates who have acquired a university degree and who intend to complete postgraduate or master studies, doctoral studies or a research stay of at least three semesters at a university in Germany. The scholarship program consists of financial assistance, personal guidance, and a wide seminar program. After the successful completion of studies, scholars remain in contact with their alumni and involve them in our national and international activities. Upon completing their studies in Germany, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung expects its former scholars to contribute actively to the development of their home country’s relations with the Federal Republic of Germany.

The deadline is on 15 July 2020.
