Undergraduate scholarship programs at GJU

 

 

                            Background of the Scholarships 

The German Jordanian University was founded as a bi-national university on behalf of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research Germany and the Ministry of Higher Education & Scientific Research Jordan. The German government provides several funds to support and sustain the development of the GJU. A part of the money is dedicated to scholarships for GJU students. The donors of the scholarships are the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) jointly with the University of Applied Sciences Magdeburg (GJU Project Office Magdeburg).

 

Types of Scholarships for undergraduate students
German Year Scholarships

(Last updated: 26.07.2021)

 

We would like to draw your attention that the GJU Project Office Magdeburg, our strategic partner in Germany, has informed us earlier that the DAAD German Year Scholarship will be shortened to cover only the study semester of the German Year. This is due to the reduction of the budget allocated to GJU from the donor of the scholarship DAAD starting from the summer semester batch 2020. At the same time, this allows the International Office to award more students with a scholarship as we discussed this with the presidency and the Exchange Coordinators.
