Scholarships for international applicants at Macromedia University

The Macromedia University scholarship programme offers a few partial scholarships to support talented applicants to finance their programmes. The criteria for inclusion in the programme are grades at school and/or university and voluntary work for social causes.

This is because Macromedia University aspires not just to train its students on a professional level, but also to qualify and support them with regard to their personal development. The scholarship programme thus follows the university’s core idea: »personality + competence«.

In accordance with this, three different scholarships are awarded:

- Need-based scholarship: For students who can prove financial support is needed to manage the costs of studying abroad in Germany. 

- Merit-based scholarship: For high achieving students who have outstanding grades or excellent record in social engagement like volunteering experience.

- The Indian-German friendship scholarship: For students who apply from India to study at Macromedia University.

The decision to award scholarships is made by an internal scholarship committee. The amount can be between 10% and 30% of the tuition fee.

How to apply

Details of the application criteria as well as application deadlines can be found in the scholarship application documents.

Who can apply

Secondary-school graduates and first-year students may apply. 

Scholarship applicants are expected to support Macromedia University as student ambassadors throughout the entire programme. This includes attending and (co-) organizing events on campus, involvement of student-led initiatives and tutorials, involvement in on-campus activities and other similar engagement.
Please find details on the application requirements and the deadlines for the scholarship application in the scholarship application form.
