Give & take

The University of Passau enjoys an excellent reputation in Germany and the world owing to its consistent international approach and its focus on performance and practical relevance.

We expect a lot from our students – but at the same time, we give you individual support, provide first-rate education and give you the best chance for a bright future.

Sponsor young talents

We need your support for the long-term subsidisation of the most promising students of the University of Passau. We welcome sponsorships from companies large, medium-sized and small, as well as foundations and private individuals.

How to become a sponsor

As a sponsor you have a number of opportunities to get involved with the scholarship programme of the University of Passau:

Sponsorship package 1

  • Spend a minimum amount of 1,800 euros and pay a one-year scholarship for one or more students.
  • Choose the discipline for which you want to sponsor a scholarship.
  • Make the scholarship holders special offers (e.g. internships or training seminars).
  • Meet your sponsored scholarship holders.
  • Those sponsoring five or more scholarships have the option of sitting on the selection committee.

Sponsorship package 2

  • Make a non-discipline-specific donation of at least 150 euros, the scholarship contribution for one month.

  • We select particularly strong and socially committed students.
