The Deutschlandstipendium is a scholarship program designed to support highly talented and motivated students in Germany. It was introduced by the German Federal Government in 2011 and has since then been awarded to thousands of students across the country. The scholarship aims to promote diversity and equal opportunities in education and to encourage young people to pursue their academic goals and contribute to the progress of society.

Level of Study

Funding is normally granted for at least 2 semesters but may be provided for a maximum time which covers the standard period of study. At intervals of 2 semesters the university reviews whether the scholarship holder still meets the award criteria and whether private funding will continue to be available. Each scholar will receive €300 per month (€150 are supplied by private sponsors and €150 by the Federal Government). The Deutschlandstipendium is awarded irrespective of personal or parent income.


To be eligible for the Deutschlandstipendium, students must meet the following criteria:

  • They must be enrolled in a full-time degree program at a German institution of higher education.
  • They must have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and a strong commitment to their field of study.
  • They must have overcome significant personal or societal challenges to pursue their academic goals.
  • They must have contributed to the community through volunteer work or other extracurricular activities.
