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!

Please be aware that you are responsible for the application. Secondly, it is important to note that the scholarships usually will not cover the full expenses of an internship abroad. Therefore it is wise to make a financial plan in advance.
