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.
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. Formally, the applications of a chosen candidate have to meet the requirements for a PhD application.

- 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").
