Scholarship opportunities for international students

Studying abroad may be one of the most beneficial experiences for students. Many agree that it was the best decision of their lives. By studying abroad, you have the opportunity to get to know a new culture and a new way of life before returning home with unforgettable memories. Not least, with the invaluable global perspectives you gain.

But not everyone who wants to study abroad can afford the full tuition fee. That is why, here at PFH University, we offer international students three types of scholarships. 


The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) funds the STIBET-Programme with funds from the Federal Foreign Office. The International Office of PFH offers scholarships for study completion and scholarships for social engagement to qualified international students of PFH.
