International students can apply to numerous organisations for a scholarship, for example to the DAAD, to party-related foundations or business-affiliated institutions. You can find information on the various types of scholarships in the DAAD scholarship database, along with suitable offers.

A. Requirements for scholarship application
1. Is there an age limit for DAAD scholarships?
No, there is usually no fixed age limit. There are individual exceptions in programmes in which this is explicitly requested by an international partner. Some scholarship programmes stipulate that only a certain amount of time should have elapsed since the last degree was taken (see also question 2). For details, please refer to the respective Call for Applications at under the heading "Application requirements".

2. I finished my university degree or started my doctorate longer ago than the application requirements specify. Am I still eligible to apply?
Yes, an application may be permissible under the following circumstances which may have a delaying effect on studies or doctoral projects:

pregnancy and childbirth
care of children up to the age of 12 (maximum of three years per child)
care of care-dependent relatives
disability or chronic illness
prolonged, serious illness
compulsory military service
if applicable, other circumstances.
The dates of birth of children and periods of childcare or care of relatives or longer periods of absence due to illness or disability should be indicated in the application form; the last free text field "Other comments / Information" is available for this purpose. DAAD reserves the right to ask you to submit appropriate supporting documents.

Proof of disabilities or illnesses can be provided in the form of a disability card or medical certificate. If possible, the medical certificate should indicate the periods of absence.

Information about studying abroad with a disability or chronic illness is provided in the following: Mobility with a Disability.

Other circumstances must also be justified and substantiated with supporting documents.

3. I have not completed my university degree at the time of application. Am I still eligible to apply for a scholarship?

Study abroad for free by enrolling direct
I should first mentioned that all of the countries in this article are only free to attend if you enroll directly with the university, or that country’s equivalent. If you’re American, the study abroad programs that your school advertises or that you see online will still charge you…and a LOT, even if you study in one of the below countries. There are major advantages for using those programs over enrolling directly, like ease of the application process, help with visas, the fact that you’re dealing with American admin people and financial terms, and much more, mostly in terms of ease and convenience.

If you’re up for a longer-term study abroad option, and you’re willing to do all of your application paperwork yourself, do tons of research on your own in terms of which classes to take, figure out if your classes abroad will count for your home university degree, plus deal with the red tape that usually comes with dealing with a foreign country, then you can definitely bag yourself a free study abroad experience.

Germany is known for its excellent university system, and all international students can study here for free after paying a yearly administration fee, which is usually less than €350. The country has lots of cool cities that you could study abroad in, all while paying nothing for your education and with low living costs if you pass on studying in the major cities like Munich. In my opinion, Germany is the absolute best option if you want to study abroad for free.

For most degree programmes, knowledge of German is a prerequisite for admission to German university. You can prove your German language proficiency by taking a language test, such as the TestDaF or DSH. However, you don’t need to know German if you intend on enrolling in an international degree programme. You can attend a language course to improve your German language skills.
German is normally the language of instruction in most degree programmes at German universities. That’s why foreign applicants are usually required to prove their knowledge of German before gaining admission.
