The Deutschlandstipendium is a unique opportunity for financial support during your your time at university.

Half of the funding is provided by generous private sponsors, including companies, private individuals, foundations and associations, and the other half by federal funds. As a scholarship holder, you will receive a monthly grant of 300 euros.
