[Translate to Englisch:] Chancen verbessern mit einem Stipendium.

Our students and doctoral candidates want to assume social responsibility and enjoy the freedom to set their own goals at a very early stage with us. By taking on a scholarship, you are opening up new prospects for a talented young person in their studies or doctorate. In addition to this very personal gift, you are also securing Germany's leading position in business and science, because demographic change means there is a shortage of outstandingly qualified specialists in this country, too. With your help, we want to change that.

The Deutschlandstipendium is the largest public-private partnersip in Germany's educational sector. The resulting network of universities, sponsors and scholarship holders benefits all the stakeholders. More than 140 Mio. Euro were given from private sponsors, such as foundations, societies, private individuals and companies. With a donation of 150 Euro you can support one year of a students life cycle. As the Federal Government spent also 150 Euro, a succesful candidate will receive 300 Euro per month. If you want, you get to know your student. Become part of a growing network which was established in a joint effort between the Federal Government, universities and private sponsors!

Shortly before graduation, students with children and students with chronic illnesses/disabilities may find themselves in a crisis situation. The multiple stresses threaten to have a negative impact on the duration of studies and especially on graduation. It becomes even more problematic when, in times of the Corona pandemic, childcare facilities are closed, visits to doctors' offices are made more difficult, social networks are lost, and opportunities to earn money are eliminated. Scholarships or other funding for students with disabilities or chronic illnesses are, overall, very few in the funding landscape. In October 2020, the E. W. Kuhlmann Foundation initiated the "Opportunity Scholarship", which for the first time provided 10 scholarships in the amount of €500, thus enabling students to successfully complete their studies at the university in a unique way. If you would also like to support students in need, please contact us.
