Bachelor of Science Scholarship Programme
Frankfurt School maintains a scholarship program for its Bachelor of Science geared toward highly qualified students. It consists of a reduction of the tuition fee for the entire duration of the studies. The semester(s) abroad are included in the scholarship, provided that students choose to go to one of our partner universities under a so-called exchange agreement.
Frankfurt School offers different types of scholarships which are open to all students with excellent grades and a strong performance in the Frankfurt School admissions process. They consist of a 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% reduction of the tuition fees. Also, we take into consideration your background, motivation, financial need and extracurricular engagement.
The following Scholarship programmes are available for future BSc students:
New in 2020: Diversity scholarship programme
General FS Scholarship
New in 2020 - Diversity scholarship programme
Since Autumn 2020, Frankfurt School offers a new merit-based scholarship programme to ensure that talented students from a diverse range of backgrounds can focus on their future without worrying about their finances.
The diversity scholarship programme promotes diversity in terms of race, academic background, gender and ability and consists of either a 25% or 50% reduction in tuition fees. If you feel that you meet one of the following criteria, you are welcome to apply to one of the following scholarships.
General FS Scholarship
The Frankfurt School General Scholarship is intended for applicants with very good grades and a good result in the application process. Applicants can receive a scholarship of 25%, 50% or 75%.
The President's Scholarship
We award this scholarship to exceptionally highly qualified students. It includes a 100% tuition reduction.
German Merit Foundation (Studienstiftung) Fast Track and Scholarship ("allgemeine Hochschulreife/Abitur" only)
Students who are recommended by their school for a scholarship from the German Merit Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes) will receive priority admission to the BSc programme on a fast track. Instead of completing the full admissions process they only have to apply online, sit the interview and submit proof of language knowledge. Upon acceptance, they will automatically be granted a scholarship with 50% tuition reduction. If they are subsequently accepted into the Merit Foundation itself, Frankfurt School will increase the scholarship to 75% tuition reduction from the third semester onward.
Since schools typically submit their recommendations to the Merit Foundation in June or July future students can apply for this scholarship even if we have already admitted them to the BSc programme, provided that they have not started their studies yet. Applicants will need a confirmation signed by the headmaster of their school confirming that they have been or will be recommended for the Merit Foundation's scholarship programme. Students also need to maintain a minium grade point average of 1.5 on the German grading scale.
How to apply
During your application for one of the BSc programmes at Frankfurt School you have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship and state why we should award you a scholarship. Once applicants have been offered a place at Frankfurt School, the BSc Admissions and Scholarship Committee will let you know whether we will award you a scholarship.
The Committee meets regularly throughout the year to review applications and award scholarships. Our new Diversity Scholarship Programme is offered as of May 2020 to support future students in these difficult times. We therefore encourage prospective students to apply until our application deadline - 30 June 2020. It is not necessary to have the final school leaving certificate at this stage.
Under no circumstances is it possible to apply for a scholarship if a student has already begun his or her BSc studies at Frankfurt School. The decision of the Committee is final and cannot be appealed. There is no legal right to a scholarship.
The scholarship may be reduced or revoked at any time if the student behaves in a way that is incompatible with the norms and values of Frankfurt School or the intentions of the scholarship. Frankfurt School may reclaim tuition reductions if the student made false statements in the application.
The scholarship is subject to a satisfactory academic performance. Every year the BSc Admissions and Scholarship Committee reviews the performance of the students. All scholarship holders are expected to maintain a certain average grade over the past two semesters.
If a scholarship holder does not fulfill the condition, Frankfurt School will downgrade the scholarship for the next two semesters. The scholarship will be reinstated in full if the student meets the criteria at the subsequent review. If a student fails to meet the conditions for a second consecutive time, the scholarship will be rescinded irrevocably. If a student is only slightly below the threshold, the Committee will also evaluate and consider a student's engagement for the School community, such as leadership roles in initiatives, the Student Council or as FS Ambassador, before taking a decision regarding the tuition reduction. Exceptions in case of hardship are also possible.
Scholarship holders are expected to participate in activities that the School organizes as part of the scholarship programme. Scholarship holders also agree to be available to a reasonable amount for the School's public relation activities, such as interviews and photo sessions.
