If you are considering applying for a scholarship then it is best to gather information about scholarship opportunities for studying abroad available in your home country. For example, scholarships offered by home governments or home educational institutions.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) provides opportunities for foreign candidates to undertake full time study or doctoral study in German tertiary and technical institutions. More information about the scholarships offered can be found in the brochure "Förderungsmöglichkeiten für ausländische Hochschulangehörige" (www.funding-guide.de) You can obtain this information pamphlet at your nearest German embassy or consulate. The scholarship support is only offered for a certain duration and not for the entire tenure of your studies.
The DAAD also has offices in countries abroad. You can get in touch with the DAAD directly at their foreign office. The various DAAD addresses are obtainable from your nearest German consulate.
If you find yourself unable to undertake an entire full-time study because of financial reasons or other reasons, you may consider residing for one year, which under certain circumstances can also be supported by the DAAD (see "Stipendienmöglichkeiten").
If you are currently studying at a university in your home country then it is recommended that you make enquiries about whether your university offers scholarships or student exchange programs with the University of Würzburg.
Please bear in mind that the chances of receiving a scholarship in Germany for the Grundstudium (usually the first 4 semesters) are virtually impossible and for the Hauptstudium the chances are very minimal.
The DAAD has established the Ibn Khaldun Scholarship Program with the aim of promoting Iraqi humanities and social sciences.
