 A great starting point to explore different universities as well as programs is the website Study in Germany. The website has user friendly tools to plan your stay and your studies in Germany.


The diversity of funding opportunities in Germany is unique. In addition to large organizations, such as the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD- we recommend looking at their scholarship database), researchers and students are supported by foundations, such as the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation or the Volkswagen Foundation and many more. Funding is also provided by universities and extramural research establishments. 

Training Tools

As the liaison office in our region we offer training to FUB and LMU student "ambassadors" who are at our North American partner institutions.
