FAQ on Deutschlandstipendium for students

Students can apply if

  1. they meet the admission criteria for the degree programme and 
  2. they are either enrolled at THGA or are about to do so.

The application period is usually from 1 August to 15 September through an online portal.

The first selection criteria are academic performance and the personal (and even professional) career. In addition, other selection criteria are commitment to social causes (e.g., volunteer work), the willingness to take on responsibility and specific social, familial or personal circumstance which may result, e.g., from the family background or a migration background.

An application might be more successful if the candidate has an excellent academic record (e.g., best of their year).

Students will not receive funding if they already receive funding for their giftedness and excellence according to §§ 1(3) or 4(1S,1) of the StipG (German Act on Establishing a National Scholarship Programme) unless this funding is less than EUR 30 a month on average.
