The Frankfurt School Scholarship Programme

Scholarships for excellent students

To support outstandingly qualified candidates, Frankfurt School maintains a Bachelor Scholarship Programme. 

Scholarships have the advantage over student loans and funds that the funding you receive does not have to be paid back, so you should make this funding option a high priority.

The aim of the Master scholarship programme is to provide especially talented candidates with an opportunity to study irrespective of their financial circumstances.

The Frankfurt School Bachelor Scholarship Programme

Overview

To support outstandingly qualified candidates, Frankfurt School maintains a Bachelor Scholarship Programme. Scholarships consist of tuition reductions of 25% or 50%, in exceptional cases up to 75%. This waiver applies to tuition for all regular semesters at Frankfurt School plus any mandatory semesters abroad at one of our exchange partner institutions.

Frankfurt School offers two types of scholarships:

General scholarships

Scholarships will be awarded to highly qualified candidates. Criteria include school grades, performance in the Frankfurt School admissions process and extracurricular activities.

Frankfurt School wants to further increase its diversity. Women and candidates from outside Germany are therefore particularly encouraged to apply for a scholarship.

Special scholarships

The School awards a number of special scholarships. For the 2017 intake these are:

Scholarships for graduates of the IB Diploma Programme
Students who have completed or are about to complete the IB Diploma Programme may apply for this scholar-ship.

Scholarships for graduates of German Schools Abroad (Deutsche Auslandsschulen)
These scholarships are open to students currently enrolled at a German School Abroad (Deutsche Auslandsschule, as recognized by the Zentralstelle für das Auslandsschulwesen) and those who have completed their secondary education there.

Application process

Frankfurt School awards the Bachelor of Science scholarships continuously throughout the admission process on a “first come first serve” basis. Therefore we recommend to apply as soon as possible to the BSc program starting in August 2017. Final application deadline is June 30, 2017.

The application to the scholarship program is based on a successful completion of the Assessment Center. Selected applicants will be encouraged to apply for a scholarship based on the result of the Assessment Center.

If you are eligible for a Frankfurt School scholarship, you will automatically be considered for all scholarships offered and selected for a scholarship fitting your profile.

The scholarships are exclusively for applicants starting in the first semester in August 2017. Scholarships will only be granted during the admissions process and before study start, not during an ongoing study program.
