Scholarships for international internships

There are a number of scholarships available for research and internships abroad.

Points to remember

  • Before applying for a scholarship, check carefully that you meet all the criteria.
  • You can apply for multiple scholarships. One scholarship alone is generally not enough to finance your whole stay.
  •  Some scholarships may only be requested once during your academic career. Keep this in mind if you want to go abroad during both your bachelor’s and master’s programme.
  • Apply on time: many scholarships have early deadlines!
