Scholarships for HHL Students

For the best students, to cover living costs in Germany (foreigners have to show financial resources of EUR 735 per month to obtain a student visa), HHL has established several links to private sponsors, companies and governmental organizations. These close relationships will help students to finance the stay in Germany. In addition, we recommend all foreign applicants for one of our programs to contact relevant national agencies in their respective home country. A lot of foreign governments have own scholarship programs to support a stay of their students abroad.

DAAD Scholarship Database

The scholarship database of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) should be one of your most important sources for your scholarship application. Please visit the website of the German Academic Exchange Service's scholarship database, and choose your country of origin. You must apply for most programs online. The German embassies in your home country will assist you. Please make sure to meet the application deadlines. For most programs, the German government will assist you with EUR 750 per month as a Master student or EUR 1,000 per month as a doctoral student.
