The Scholarship Department of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung awards financial grants to highly-qualified undergraduate and doctoral students from Germany and abroad who evidence high levels of social and political engagement. In granting scholarships, the Stiftung seeks to counteract the social, political and gender discrimination prevalent in our society, and therefore gives preference to applications from women, students of non-academic and migrant backgrounds, the socially needy, and people with disabilities who demonstrate comparable achievements and commitment.

Level of Studies

Applications from undergraduate and doctoral students from scientific and technical disciplines are actively encouraged, as well as from graduates of technical colleges.


Successful applicants will receive the following benefits:

  • The monthly basic scholarship consists of 850€ along with a lump sum of 20€
  • Additional subsidies for health and nursing insurance of no more than 86€ are also available.

A double scholarship with other public funds is not allowed. In the case of multiple scholarships, total funds will be calculated together.

The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung’s Scholarship Department offers scholarship holders a wide range of support, consisting of political education events and summer schools, workshops conducted both domestically as well as abroad, symposia and educational trips.

It also organizes practical training in fields such as rhetoric, conflict management and other key skills, time management and self-management, bolstering academic qualifications, text and writing workshops, and specific seminars on methodology. Particular importance is given to scholarship holders’ self-organization and their working groups. The work of the Scholarship Department is assisted by roughly 130 academic liaisons together with the staff and networks of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung.
