Fully Funded Scholarships at SBW Berlin in Germany 2023


Fully Funded Scholarships at SBW Berlin support young people from abroad who come from financially disadvantaged family backgrounds and use the skills they acquired during their studies in Germany to boost long-term non-profit projects, preferably in their home countries.

We award our scholarships for bachelor’s and master's programs at a university or special university of applied sciences in Berlin and Potsdam based on the student's academic qualifications, personal aptitude, and social needs. In general, all scientific and artistic disciplines can be funded.
