www.stipendienlotse.de is highly recommended as a search portal for scholarships in Germany. The search portal is operated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and currently contains almost 700 public, party and private or corporate scholarships. In addition to purely financially oriented scholarships, support is also provided specifically for stays abroad in the form of internships or semesters abroad. Well-known and large corporations also offer various support programmes. In addition to providing financial support, these are often aimed at long-term cooperation between the company and the scholarship holder, e.g. in the form of final theses or a later position placement.
At European or international level, the search portal http://www.scholarshipportal.eu can also help you find scholarships. In particular, it lists international exchange and study programmes that have appropriate financial and/or other kinds of support. Although the portal focuses on scholarships within the EU, it also lists exchange programmes on all continents and especially in the American region.
