Germany scholarship programme (Deutschlandstipendium)

Purpose of the scholarship

The aim of the Germany scholarship programme is for Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences to support multi-talented students, who have produced or are expected to produce outstanding results in their course and career. Considering the applicant as a whole should also incorporate social elements, such as notable awards and successes, previous employment, extracurricular commitments such as volunteering, social engagement and involvement in politics or university politics, involvement in religious communities, associations and groups as well as notable personal and family circumstances. Other selection criteria can be found in the Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences guidelines for awarding Germany scholarships.

Amount and duration of the support

The scholarship amount is €300 per month. 50% of this comes from funds from private sponsors and 50% from funds provided by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).
The length of the support is one year. If the maximum support period (i.e. the end of the standard period of study) hasn't been reached, the scholarship holder can apply again.
A requirement for the scholarship to be granted and extended is that there are private and public scholarship funds available for the period of entitlement.

Number of scholarships

According to legal specifications, the maximum number of scholarships for 2018 is a total of 97 scholarships. This number is subject to sufficient private sponsors providing support for students.

2018 applications

Applications will open for the upcoming 2018 summer semester on 15 December 2017. This site will be updated with more detailed information and application forms in good time. The application deadline is likely to be in February.

Oskar Karl Forster Scholarship for Books and Learning Resources

Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences awards gifted and underprivileged students a one-off grant for procuring books or other learning resources from the Oskar Karl Forster Scholarship fund.

The scholarship is exclusively awarded to students who have successfully passed the compulsory modules of their introductory and orientation exams in their second semester and are still enrolled at the time the scholarship is granted.

A need is identified if the student receives benefits according to the Federal Education and Training Assistance Act (BAföG) or if the net income of the person obliged to pay maintenance costs does not exceed twice their tax-free allowance according to the BAföG plus their tax-free child allowance.

Students are not eligible if they have already received study assistance from the Oscar Karl Forster scholarship fund or if they are not enrolled at the time the grant is approved.

The grant amounts to a maximum of €500. In accordance with the funds available, the maximum amount can be set lower in order to be able to consider more applications.

After your application is approved, you must provide evidence for your purchases through receipted invoices, which must show the date of purchase and the title of the work. Purchases can be considered from the beginning of the respective study year (01/10) through to 14/03.

During the application phase, current application forms are available after logging onto the university's website, under > Studium > Stipendien > Neuigkeiten, at the beginning of the year at the latest.
