Programme Description

The International Excellence Scholarship Programme (IES) is a scholarship programme that enables motivated students of all fields of study from Eastern and Southeastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia with above-average grades to spend a semester abroad in Berlin. This programme gives students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge at the best German universities (HU Berlin, FU Berlin, HWR Berlin, University of Potsdam). During the 6-month stay, the scholarship holders will actively participate in the life of the association. They will also experience German culture first-hand through living with a German-speaking host family as well as through the cultural events and social meetings. In addition, the scholarship holders take part in the programme's accompanying and developing activities, which they help to shape intensively.

The scholarship holders receive a place at the Free University of Berlin or Humboldt University of Berlin. The study programme is limited to only 1 semester. An internship is an important part of the IES programme and is designed to provide international work experience and to develop personal and professional skills. As part of the IES programme, a minimum of 8 weeks of full-time internship should be completed.
