Since the 2013 winter semester, students of Bavarian universities are no longer charged tuition fees.

In general, PhD students receive funding from their supervising research group, most often in the form of an employment contract (usually TVL-E 13 according to the German Tarifvertrag im Öffentlichen Dienst - the tariff for civil service employees). Another financing option is offered through individual scholarships, which are awarded by institutions or foundations. Additionally, the GSN currently supports a small number of PhD projects, specifically in neurophilosophy.

Especially qualified students admitted to the PhD Fast-Track program may be nominated by the admissions committee to receive a monthly stipend (€800) from the GSN during their first preparatory year. After successful completion of the preparatory year, fast-track students enter the PhD phase of the program and usually receive funding by their supervising research group.

Currently, MSc students do not receive funding. However, various scholarship programs can be accessed, such as those offered by DAAD. In addition, master students have the possibility to take on lab or research assistant positions.
