Scholarships

Unlike institutions of higher education in other countries, German universities usually do not award grants as they do not have the necessary funding. However, a few scholarships are available from various national organisations for exceptionally qualified candidates.

  • Scholarships for Post-Graduates at Bonn University

  • The Bonn International Graduate School in Mathematics (BIGS)
    awards particular qualifying scholarships of 800 Euros per month for a period of two years to a small number of excellent candidates. These scholarships are intended to attract students with an excellent Bachelor's degree in mathematics from outside Germany who wish to enter a preparatory phase for our PhD programme. There is the option of completing a regular Master's degree in this context, if desired. The courses taken in the preparatory phase - all taught in English - can be applied toward a Master's degree.
    There is an extremely limited number of these scholarships, which will be offered to the best applicants to our Master's program.

  • The site mystipendium.de allows you to search for scholarship programs (in German).
Tuition fees

The fees per term consist of the Sozialbeitrag. This enrolment fee includes free use of public transport and regional trains in the state North-Rhine-Westphalia. There are currently no further tuition fees ("Studiengebühren").
