Ruhr-Universität Bochum Deutschlandstipendium scholarships in Germany


The Scholarship Fund is going into its tenth round: from the Winter Semester 2018/2019 we will once again be awarding scholarships from the national scholarship programme (Deutschlandstipendium).The scholarships are made available by companies, institutions and individuals, and the amounts are matched by funds from the national government. With the help of our sponsors, we want to contribute to developing a scholarship culture in our country and increasing the desire of talented young people to study.The goal of this scholarship program is the improvement of your study conditions. Ideally, it should enable you to fully focus on your studies. Additionally, it has the purpose to establish contact with companies, foundations, associations and alumni, whose dedication makes this scholarship possible in the first place. At several events you will also be able to network and exchange experiences with other Deutschlandstipendium scholars.


Students who perform outstandingly academically and are involved in special social engagement can each receive € 300 per month for a year from the Ruhr-Universität Scholarship Fund.
