General information

For a doctorate with a scholarship, doctoral candidates receive monthly financial support from their scholarship providers. Scholarships are also recommended as a way for guest doctoral candidates to finance a stay at TUM.

TUM Graduate School does not grant any full scholarships, only bridge financing and completion grants. However, doctoral candidates can choose from a wide range of stipends from external providers, such as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) or various foundations. Please note that many of these stipends are bound to specific conditions such as citizenship, religious denomination, field of study or language skills.

The wide range of scholarships and support programs include allowances for living expenses, project support, travel, the completion phase and dissertation printing, as well as prizes and awards.

The easiest way to find an appropriate scholarship is through a scholarship database or a search engine.
