The Scholarship Department of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung grants financial awards to German and International highly-qualified undergraduate and doctoral students who show high levels of social and political engagement.
In granting scholarships, the Foundations aims to counteract the social, political and gender discrimination prevalent in our society, and will therefore give preference to applications from women, students of non-academic and migrant backgrounds, the socially needy, and people with disabilities who demonstrate comparable achievements and commitment.
Applications from undergraduate and doctoral students from scientific and technical disciplines are actively encouraged, as well as from graduates of technical colleges.
- High scholarly and professional qualifications (proof of above-average academic achievement at school and/or university)
- Political and social engagement in line with the aims of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung
- German language proficiency (B2 level or above)
- Personal/family background
The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung’s Scholarship Department operates according to the principle of direct application. Information on eligibility requirements and application forms for the scholarship can be found on the applications page. These documents cannot be sent by post.
