The Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM

The Baden-Wuerttemberg-STIPENDIUM for students is a program of the Baden-Wuerttemberg Stiftung. The foundation awards scholarships to support German and international students during their stay abroad for a period of one to two semesters.

Application deadline: March 15 (extended deadline July 15)

(for a stay abroad from September to July)

Prerequisites:

  • Study abroad at a partner university worldwide, or writing a term paper or thesis at a non-partner university if there is a partnership between institutes, or study abroad in Europe within the framework of a double degree program.
  • Stay at a partner university for a minimum of 3 months, up to a maximum of 11 months   

Benefits:

  • monthly partial scholarship of EUR 700 for bachelor and master students (usually 4 x EUR 700 for a one-semester stay, and 8 x EUR 700 for a two-semester stay)
  • no tuition fees (due to tuition waiver via the exchange program)
  • opportunities for networking with other scholarship recipients, participation in events of the Baden-Wuerttemberg Stiftung even after the financial support has ended 

Please note:

  • Double funding: If you are already receiving another scholarship (i.e. monthly financial support) for the purpose of studying abroad, you cannot receive a Baden-Wuerttemberg STIPENDIUM at the same time (“double funding”). However, there is no double funding if
    a) you receive a one-off payment for the purpose of the stay abroad, such as a travel grant or a free dorm place, or
    b) financial support for your university studies in Germany continues during your stay abroad
  • Students who receive a GRA (graduate research assistantship) from the host university are excluded from funding
  • Within the framework of a double master's, a stay at a European partner university (e.g. Chalmers, Sweden) can also be funded
  • In the context of an existing institute partnership, your stay at a European university can also be funded if your stay is not eligible for Erasmus+ and / or SEMP (Swiss-European Mobility Program)
