The FH Aachen Scholarship Programme

Within the framework of the federal programme "Deutschlandstipendium" (Germany Scholarship), the FH Aachen awards scholarships to students whose personal background raises expectations for outstanding course achievements. Pursuant to the law and regulation for the creation of a national scholarship programme, and the scholarship guidelines of the FH Aachen, these scholarships are performance scholarships.


Please Attend: A formal requirement for the awarding of a scholarship is being registered as a full student at the FH Aachen. 

Therefore you have to apply as a full student at the FH Aachen first. Following this you can apply to the scholarship programme.

The scholarships are only given to persons which are official admitted to a degree programme of the FH Aachen.

What requirements are there?

A formal requirement for the awarding of a scholarship is being registered as a full student at the FH Aachen. Other people who may apply are those who are about to start their course of study at the FH Aachen , i.e. who wish to take up their studies in the winter semester 2021/2022, but haven't registered yet. At the time of the scholarship award procedure, the applicants should be in the standard period of study and be registered for at least two more semesters. (Cf. Scholarship Guideline) 

The scholarships are awarded per faculty and degree programme, respectively. For the selection, the grades within a degree programme are taken into consideration.

The scholarship is awarded independent of income and BAFöG (The Federal Training Assistance Act).

A so-called "double funding" through a combination with other scholarship sponsors (organisations for the promotion of young talent, DAAD...) is not possible. Further information can be found under

How is the selection made?

The FH scholarship commission assesses the submitted applications.

In addition to the study achievements rendered up to this point, extra-curricular (social) commitment as well as details on personal and family background are weighted at 20% in the evaluation. In case of a favourable notification, these social criteria have to be verified. The final decision is made by the FH Aachen Rectorate. Please note that, in addition to the performance and overall view of the applicants, the awarding of scholarships is dependent on the acquired private sponsors and, possibly, their wishes regarding faculty, degree programme/specialisation and number of semesters.

How can I apply?

The FH scholarships are awarded annually at the start of the winter semester.

For the 2022/2023 funding period you can apply from 1.-22. june 2022. Currently the application platform is closed:

All FH Aachen students will be notified of the start of the application phase by e-mail to their FH account.
