The Deutschlandstipendium is intended to support particularly talented and high-achieving students on Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes.

The amount of the scholarship is 300 euros per month and is supported half by private sponsors and half by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The number of scholarships to be awarded depends on how many private sponsors can be won in each case. In recent years, more than 75 scholarships have been awarded at the HfWU. The scholarship is paid out monthly and approved for one year.

As a Deutschlandstipendium scholarship holder, you become part of a growing network and benefit from a wide range of contacts: Through personal exchange with sponsors and other scholarship holders at events such as the handover ceremony or the summer party, the programme offers much more than financial support.

It is possible to reapply after the end of the grant period. The maximum duration of the scholarship is generally based on the standard period of study and can only be granted beyond the standard period of study in justified cases.

The Deutschlandstipendium is awarded irrespective of income and can be combined with a BAföG (Federal Training Assistance) grant.
