How do I finance my studies?
Scholarships are the most favorable way of financing studies because they are usually provided as a non-repayable grant. The amount of the scholarship depends on the scholarship provider.
The largest scholarship providers in Germany are the Begabtenförderungswerke. Information on the works can be found at www.stipendiumplus.de.
With the Deutschlandstipendium, the University of Kassel supports talented students. The sponsored students receive a scholarship of 300 euros per month.
