How does the Deutschlandstipendium work?
With a financial contribution of at least € 1,800, you can finance a one-year grant and sponsor the next generation of academics in Germany. The other 50 % of the grant, i.e. another € 1,800, will be paid by the Federal Republic of Germany. This means that, over a period of one year, students will receive a grant of € 300 per month, 50 % of which will be financed by private sponsors, the other 50 % by the Federal Republic of Germany.
For every second and third grant they finance, sponsors can choose a specific subject or degree course, i.e. they can designate their funds to a specific purpose. Under certain circumstances, it might also be possible to finance a grant in part.
Potential sponsors and interested students can find important information on the Deutschlandstipenidum as well as answers to any questions they might have on the website www.deutschland-stipendium.de by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
The university administration has issued guidelines for the awarding of Deutschlandstipendium according to the Stipendienprogramm-Gesetz. You can find these guidelines here.
In addition to a top academic record, award criteria also include community engagement activities and special social, personal or family circumstances.
