The Deutschlandstipendium provides financial and non-material support to high-achieving and committed students from all over the world that study in participating universities in Germany. This unique scholarship bridges public-private partnership, businesses, foundations or private individuals that sponsor young talent with a pledge of 150 euros per month with the Federal Government that matches this amount with another 150 euros. Funding is normally granted for at least two semesters but may be provided for a maximum time which covers the standard period of study. At intervals of two semesters the university reviews whether the scholarship holder still meets the award criteria and whether private funding will continue to be available.

The scholarship is awarded without consideration of personal or parental income and one’s nationality. Applicants must meet the requirements of the individual institutions. In addition to academic achievement, the criteria for selecting scholarship recipients include social commitment and personal achievements, such as a student overcoming challenges or obstacles in his or her social or family background.
Mentoring programs, networking events and internships allow scholarship holders to establish valuable contacts to businesses and gain insight into work life.
