Type of Scholarship
Partially funded








“Democracy needs political education.” This could be one of the mottos of the Hanns Seidel Foundation. And it is also what the foundation aims to pass on to young people: to take responsibility and be committed to social issues. The Hanns Seidel Foundation expects its scholarship holders to possess excellent qualities at a personal and scientific level. They are also expected to participate in shaping a free and constitutional state within the framework of a democratic social order. A sense of civic responsibility and political open-mindedness are indispensable qualities in applicants. And when all the formalities have been completed and the applicant has been found deserving of sponsorship, approximately 1000 euros a month will enable him or her to concentrate on his or her research. Approximately 100 foreign students are sponsored every year. 



Number of Scholarships
Approx. 100

The scholarship is initially granted for one year. An extension can be applied for. An assessment of academic achievement will take place before a scholarship is granted. The sponsorship ends after two years. Under extraordinary circumstances the scholarship may be extended for a further six months.

Scholarship Value
For doctoral candidates, the maximum rate of scholarship support is 1,050.00 EUR per month plus a research cost allowance of 100.00 EUR. Married scholarship holders can obtain an additional family allowance of 155.00 EUR if the net annual income of their spouse does not exceed 15,340.00 EUR. Child-care support for doctoral candidates: Doctoral candidates with a child of their own, which is no more than 12 years old and lives with them in their own home can informally apply for a monthly child-care allowance of 155.00 EUR. The allowance is raised by 50.00 EUR for every additional child up to a maximum sum of 255.00 EUR per month.
