Financing through scholarships 


Heads up: We award four 50% scholarships every month to people with particularly inspiring backgrounds who are not yet enrolled at IU International University of Applied Sciences!  

With IU scholarship, your tuition fees are reduced over the entire duration of your studies. And because we know that everyone's educational path is unique, we have several reasons why we should support you.  

Take your chance and apply for one of our scholarships for people with disabilities, Women in Tech, Single Parents or New Starters


With a health impairment, you master small or big challenges every day to realise your dreams. We want to encourage this commitment so that you can also encourage others!  

Prerequisite: You can prove that you have a permanent health limitation. In addition, you must submit a current certificate/proof of impairment (medical certificate or pass for severely disabled/handicapped person). 


For Women in MINT (Mathematics, Informatics, Natural Sciences and Technology): Are you looking to conquer male-dominated industries with your tech skills? We are fully behind you – with our Women in Tech Scholarship! 


Prerequisite: You apply for one of our Bachelor's or Master's degree programmes in the field of IT & Technology. Additionally, you have to present your motivation for a technical profession in your written motivation letter or your video. 

Scholarship for single parents

If you are a single parent studying for a degree, you deserve more than just respect: You are not only concerned about your future, but also about that of your child. We would like to honour this personal achievement by supporting you financially with our scholarship for single parents.  

Prerequisite: You are a single parent, have sole or shared custody and your child or children live with you? Then we look forward to receiving your application! 

Scholarship for new starters

Do you want to change your career direction or make a completely new start? Then you have a lot to gain: Because education knows no age - even if BAföG is no longer available! To reward your courage, we award our scholarship for new starters.
