There are several ways for prospective students to obtain financial support in order to help them finance both the tuition fees and the cost of living in Germany.
Since expenses at the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy require a substantial financial commitment from both the student and the Brandt School, MPP candidates are encouraged to start their financial planning several months in advance of applying to the program. This includes to realistically assess your costs and identifying sources of financial assistance.
International students who need to apply for a student visa must prove that they have sufficient funds before coming to Germany. Further information may be found in the section Visa Procedures.
The Brandt School has limited scholarship resources for international and domestic students. For incoming first year students we maintain endowments by the Haniel Foundation: The Go-West Scholarship program for applicants from Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and the Haniel Stipends for highly qualified applicants from Western Europe, North America and Germany. The latter are only available from the 2012-2014 study period onward.
