Federal scholarship of the German Government

In rare cases it is possible for international students to be awarded a BAföG scholarship. Please note, however, that the requirements for awarding are quite specific and as such, most international students are not eligible. For further information, please contact the Studierendenwerk Düsseldorf (see below).

If you would like to submit a BAföG application, you can find pre-printed forms at
