Partially and fully funded








The Friedrich Nauman Foundation sees itself as the foundation for liberal politics in Germany. It is closely connected to the FPD party. The foundation has been sponsoring students at German universities since 1973, and also at universities of applied sciences since 1990. Besides excellent academic achievements it also expects commitment to political and social issues and positive personal qualities such as reliability, motivation and decisiveness of its students. The objective of sponsoring foreign students is that they return to their home countries after their examinations and put the knowledge they have gained to use in the interests of those countries. Approximately 60 foreign doctoral candidates are sponsored every year.  



Number of Scholarships
Approx. 60 foreign doctoral candidates

Graduate scholarships are initially awarded for one year, and extended by a further year on application. Thereafter, extensions may be granted twice for half a year each in very rare exceptional cases, and only with special justification. Sponsorship for longer than three years is not possible.

Scholarship Value

    * Scholarships are calculated on an individual basis. The scholarship amount depends on the status of the student or graduate. The scholarships do not have to be paid back! Families are also supported in various ways. The scholarships awarded to students from abroad and all doctoral candidates do not take the parents of the recipients into consideration.
