KAAD is the scholarship organization of the German Catholic Church for postgraduates and academics from (developing) countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and Eastern and South-Eastern Europe.

Through scholarships, educational events, and personal and spiritual support, it promotes its scholarship holders with a view to multiplier activities in their home countries. This is done in cooperation with partner bodies and associations of former scholarship holders in these countries, with the aim of (academic) networking and contributing to holistic development, which includes the religious and inter-religious dimensions.

Application for a scholarship at KAAD is only possible through the university chaplaincy. For further information contact Sr. Marie-Pasquale


The Bischöfliche Studienförderung Cusanuswerk is the scholarship program for gifted students of the Catholic Church in Germany within the framework of state support for gifted students.

Our mission is to provide non-material and financial support to exceptionally gifted Catholic students and doctoral candidates in all fields of study. We want to enable the sponsored students and doctoral candidates to contribute their talents and their ability to shape the future of the community in a Christian sense of responsibility: in the state, society and the family, in science and the Church, in business, culture and the media.

We select students and doctoral candidates who live their Christian faith, act with a strong sense of responsibility for the common good and can be expected to achieve outstanding academic results. With every admission decision, we place our trust in a young person who perceives his or her talent as a gift and a task.

Applications are submitted directly to the Cusanuswerk.
