Hi, does anybody from Germany knows if the German government offer any scholarship for german citizens to pursue a PhD in the UK?
I would greatly appreciate any information about this.

no. why should the German government do this anyway? they do fund however internships (going off to a research group abroad for a year or so), whilst doing the PhD in Germany.

Not directly the government. But have a look at DAAD and some religious e/political institutions. However, DAAD would be the best call, they sponsor students who wish to pursue a PhD but the money is not really satisfying. I would say you could barely pay the fee with it.
When it comes to PhD, German does not need to send their students out and therefore their is really less offer of funding. Bachelor/Master are other stories...Profs have a budget to take care of students they really "want" and others get the money from funding and/or companies.
Try DAAD if you haven't done it yet.http://www.postgraduateforum.com/images/panelButtons/postButton.gif

thanks very much for your answer. I already contacted the DAAD, but I´m afraid they only give scholarships for international students who want to study in Germany. Do you know some political or religious organization?

thanks a lot

DAAD definitely supports german citizens to pursue a PhD, also abroad. I guess DAAD-funding is less difficult to get.
Institutions like SdW, Konrad Adenauer, Cusanus and so on offer studentships but you should participate in activities, will be difficult when in UK. My Brother for instance has to participate once a month in activities.
If you can read german have a look at this link: http://www.e-fellows.net/show/detail.php/5789, very useful! You can look for scholarships in Europe.
