Scholarships and Funding


Scholarships for attending Summer and Winter University (HUWISU) at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin are awarded by external funding organisations, i.e. DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).

Please visit the homepage of the DAAD to find information on various kinds of DAAD funding for foreign students, especially for your home country, as well as funding offered by other selected organisations via the DAAD Scholarship Database. In addition to that it can be helpful to contact the Branch offices from DAAD in your home country.

The deadlines for your application may differ from the deadlines of HUWISU. Therefore we suggest to start the application at least 6 up to 8 months before the beginning of our summer and winter courses because the scholarship application can be quite extensive. Please also note that HUWISU will not be able to support your scholarship application.

The following institutions may also give you information about scholarship opportunities:

  • Your home university

  • The government of your country

  • Organisations cooperating with Germany

  • Scholarship databases of your country's Ministry of Education
