Here you can find information about all types of funding for your studies. Contact the respective person listed for more detailed information about individual scholarships or funding opportunities.

Financial Aid

A good education is more important today than ever before. This is true for both individuals and for our society as a whole. Knowledge and the application of knowledge are the greatest potential that we have in Germany. The Federal Training Assistance Act or BAföG guarantees that youth and young adults can complete training or education based on their own aptitude and interest - regardless if their family's financial situation allows it or not.

General information and a calculator for BAföG can help you with applying and other formalities.


If you have additional questions, the respective central RWTH Aachen advising offices and those in the faculty in the Department of Mechanical Engineering are also available to answer them.

You can also find out more about studies during separate advising and info days. There you will meet competent employees who can talk to you and answer your questions.
