State Graduate Funding
Scholarships as per the State Law on Graduate Funding (LGFG)
The awarding of LGFG scholarships is the responsibility of the state higher education institutions. In Freiburg, the administrative side of this task is carried out by the International Graduate Academy (IGA). The IGA is responsible for individual funding (calls for applications and administration), but does not make decisions on the awarding of scholarships.
Rather, these decisions are made by the central grants commission (a senate commission), which generally adheres to the recommendations made by the expert advisory committees.
Funding begins twice yearly in spring and autumn contingent on sufficient budget resources.
Also foreign graduate students can apply for the scholarship. More information is available here.
