RWTH International Academy offers exclusive scholarships for students enrolled in their Masters‘ degree programs.

The Student Project Grant is an exclusive scholarship for RWTH International Academy students. RWTH International Academy provides funding for students who wish to pursue field research, extracurricular research work, or project work during their degree program.

RWTH International Academy actively supports students’ efforts towards learning German and rewards good performances accordingly. With this goal in mind, we have set up a German Language Merit Scholarship attainable for a substantial number of students.

During their studies at RWTH International Academy, students are encouraged to take German language courses beyond the curricular requirement of their program. In this regard, they can get sponsored by us: Under certain conditions, the costs for additional language courses can be fully or partly funded through a scholarship.

Eligible for funding are extracurricular German language courses offered by the RWTH Language Center. Students need to actively and self-responsibly register themselves for a German language course at the Language Center. This includes that students have to pay the course fee in advance (please note that course offerings and capacities are administered by the RWTH Language Center – RWTH International Academy is not responsible in this regard).
