eBook with more than 400 scholarship providers!
A scholarship is a financial or non-material support "for specific purposes". They are awarded by one of the 13 organisations for the promotion of gifted students and various foundations. In total, there are an estimated 2,000 institutions in Germany.
Nowadays, no school giftedness is assumed for the support - many scholarships are based on religious beliefs, family circumstances or scientific discussions. In terms of payment amounts, many scholarships hardly differ from the BAföG rate. However, scholarship holders also receive special payments such as book money or travel grants. Furthermore, in most cases the financial support does not have to be repaid.
The eBook linked here offers a very good overview of several hundred programmes, their criteria and the type of funding.
