Hanns Seidel Foundation currently supports more than 1,000 highly qualified post-graduate and Ph.D.-students from around the world who pursue research or higher studies in Germany.
From India, 42 awardees of various fields have been selected since 2008. The aim is to support young and gifted students/scholars in fulfilling their academic plans in Germany and to further excel in their field but lack the means to do so. The awardees later become change makers who play their part in further development of India.
Our scholarship awardees are included in a participative conceptual support programme, which offers excursions, participation in extra-curricular courses and interesting events on politics, contemporary history, culture and more.
Study or research in Bavaria is preferred but not mandatory.
A special programme exists together with the Federation of Indo-German Societies. If you are a student of German Studies, kindly check www.figs-india.org/scholarshipprog.htm
