As part of the DAAD funded scholarship program STIBET III – Matching Funds, the International Psychoanalytic University Berlin is thrilled to announce the implementation of three scholarships for new international students demonstrating academic excellence.

The scholarships are available for students beginning the MA Psychology study course with a clinical focus or German Track in winter semester 2021, and who obtained their bachelor's degree outside of the European Union.

With partial funds from the German Federal Foreign Office (AA) and a substantial grant from the Foundation to Promote University Psychoanalysis, the three individual scholarships will stretch over a duration of 24 months (01.10.21-30.09.23) and will each amount to a monthly sum of €830, which approximately covers the monthly tuition fee at the IPU Berlin.


Applicants are required to:

  • be in possession of a bachelor’s degree from a university based outside of the European Union
  • be able to confirm possession of excellent grades (1,0-1,5) from their bachelor’s degree
  • have received an interview invitation from the IPU, as part of the application process for the eligible programs starting in the winter semester 2021/22.

We will primarily consider your excellent academic achievements and – should candidates possess the same level of academic excellence – your letter of motivation, educational background (individuals belonging to the first generation within their family to initiate an academic career), and societal engagement and/or voluntary activities.
