A Brief Background of the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung Scholarships

The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung Scholarships are scholarship awards instituted by the Scholarship Department of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung Foundation.

The scholarships offer financial aid facilities or packages in the form of grants to highly qualified candidates who fall within certain levels of academic categories. In respect to the latter, the scholarship only considers eligible, undergraduate and doctoral students.

Such students must be proven to be of very high social and political consciousness and must be engaged accordingly. The scholarships, as already stated take the form of grants which means the packages offered are non-refundable.

The scholarships are awarded to both local students (since the scholarship foundation is in Germany), that is, students of German origin, and international students as well.

How to Apply For The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung Scholarships

To apply for the scholarships, there are processes to be observed, as well as dates to take note of. Speaking of processes,  these consist of the steps one would have to take in order to complete the application.

On the steps, foremostly, for a successful application, it must be carried out online on the scholarship section of the Foundation portal. For your convenience, you could visit the scholarship page via this link.

It is on the scholarship page that the application form would have to be completed and submitted. To complete the form during the 2021 window, candidates would have to wait till August 18th when the portal would be opened for international students and doctoral candidates.

The deadline is October 1st of the same year. This date applies to the summer semester. For the winter semester, the portal opens on the 18th of March and closes on the 1st of April. Interested applicants are hereby advised to begin their application promptly and should endeavour to complete their applications as quickly as possible.

Further Instructions

It, therefore, falls on the candidates to ensure they gather all the required documents on time and get them uploaded early. The notice is from the board in advance to interested applicants. This is to help them avoid issues that have been perplexing applicants in previous years.

According to them, waiting till the deadline or around the closing period usually leads to congestion. This usually prevents some candidates from submitting their applications successfully. Therefore, to avoid this, applicants are instructed not to wait for the deadline to approach before submitting their applications.

The instruction comes with a follow-up warning which reminds prospective candidates that written applications are not accepted. As such, trying to submit the application via E-MAIL or by post will not be tenable. In the event where one experiences difficulties during the application, some guides have been provided.

In the case of the candidate being unable to select his or her university, it is advised that he or she type in “NO UN/FH”. If it is the course that cannot be selected, candidates are advised to enter “other subject area”. Here are other things you should know.

Who Is Eligible For The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung Scholarships?

The scholarship department of the Foundation awards scholarships in the form of grants to foreign students who have been living in Germany temporarily for academic purposes only.

Such students are only accepted by virtue of their level of studies. As such, they are expected to be either Masters students or PhD students. For the above category of applicants, the required academic requirements are as follows:

1. A B2 or above German language proficiency level

2. Enrolment into a state or state-accredited German university. This applies to the Master’s students

3. For the PhD candidates, they must have been accepted by a German University as well

However, one of the cardinal purposes of the scholarships is the Stiftung Foundation’s drive to lessen the social, political and gender discrimination which has been rampant in most societies. As such, the scholarship gives some level of priority and preference to female applicants.

other sects that are considered more favourably are students of non-academic and migrant backgrounds, the socially needy, and people with disabilities who exhibit comparable accomplishments and commitment.

Applications from undergraduate and doctoral students from scientific and technical disciplines are also highly encouraged and the same applies to candidates who have graduated from technical colleges.

But generally, the scholarship application is open to international students the world over. By implication, whichever country a student is from, if he or she has met the requirements, he or she could apply for the scholarship and could equally benefit from it.

Benefits of The Scholarships

The scholarships take the form of living grants. This will cover the entire duration of the benefiting students’ studies. It should be brought to your knowledge that the scholarships do not cover tuition fees for international students. However, part of what the program provides for includes the following:

1. Political education activities and events

2. Local and international workshops

3. Academically motivated trips and symposia

Training in core skills including self-management, rhetoric, conflict resolution and management

Seminars, among others.

The scholarship is also a very good platform through which one gains exposure and get to understand the academic, social and political as well as the cultural standing of others. This knowledge could be invaluable in time.

In the light of that, it is expected that students who consider themselves within the required category endeavour to send in their applications. It is true that the chances of success could be less than one per cent (1%) for each qualified candidate. Yet, at the end of the day, people will still benefit and you could be one among them. 

As it were, you have all the vital information regarding the application for the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung Scholarships Application 2022. However, the scholarship application goes through certain processes before the scholarships are eventually awarded to candidates.
