I would like to offer an overview on the options available how to finance study times (for a PhD or Master/Bachelor degree) and also on pro’s and con’s. There will be a post on this topic soon – now I want to pass on some links to (German) fellowship organisations that might be interesting to you and with some which I have also worked with before.
If I can support you in writing your proposal, please get in touch.
DAAD. The German Academic Exchange Service offers a worldwide scholarship database for a Bachelor’s, a Master’s degree as well as for PhD’s and Post-docs. It also supports internationals in coming to Germany and study here or academics to further their academic careers. Concerning my experience it is a great offer but you might not be able to cover all your expenses with it.
