Germany Scholarship (Deutschlandstipendium)
The new funding program “Germany scholarship” was developed by the federal government with the goal of supporting and funding students at universities in Germany according to their performance and talent.
The contribution from private donors (companies, foundations, associations, alumni, private persons) for a scholarship of 150 euros per month is matched by the state (and the companies can write off the scholarship for their taxes). This means that the scholarship of 300 euros per month are funded jointly by the state and private donors. In the scholarship program, the University of Hohenheim has the task of procuring funding from the private donors and choosing the scholarship recipients with a selection procedure. In the winter semester 2018/19, a maximum of 1.5% of the students in Hohenheim (143 scholarships) can receive these scholarships, assuming they are funded by private donors. The scholarships are awarded at a festive event.
The selection criteria include outstanding academic performance as well as social involvement and the willingness to take responsibility, e.g. in a club, political organization or within the family or community.
Special personal circumstances, such as family-related issues, e.g. having a migratory background, are also taken into consideration. Underlying the selection process is the conviction that society and business need young talent in the form of persons who are prepared to go above and beyond their professional qualifications and take charge and master difficult situations.
The University of Hohenheim welcomes and supports this program so that the academic careers of young adults are not hindered by financial hurdles, but rather such individuals are provided with even more incentive to strive ahead.
