The Deutschlandstipendium scholarship plays a key role in financing students' degree studies. Applicants starting out on their degree programmes who have shown particularly good results are eligible for the scholarship of 300 euros per month. This scholarship is not means-tested. When considering the applications, the Deutschlandstipendium team takes into account prior academic performance, as well as social commitment and personal achievements.
The scholarship is financed fifty percent by private sponsors, the other half comes from a federal grant. Successful applicants receive the scholarship for a minimum of one year (six months in exceptional cases), and up to the standard duration of study for the relevant degree course.
The scholarship holders are chosen by a selection committee of the University of Passau. Applications for the Deutschlandstipendium scholarship should be made in the summer and winter semesters. Reapplications are allowed.
