Germany scholarship program ("Deutschlandstipendium")

Under the Germany Scholarships program German universities engage in fundraising to sponsor their own students. The universities are to find businesses and institutions as sponsors and the federal government matches their contributions. The Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences successfully participates in the program since 2011 and is one of Germany's most successful university at fund raising for Germany scholarships from companies, foundations, institutions and private individuals.

It offers many of its students the opportunity to receive financial (3,600 euros/year) and intellectual support (for instance through internships, mentoring programs) from their respective funders. Many of our sponsors also support Germany Scholarship holders through concurrent mentoring programmes, networking events and internships. Every student can apply several years in a row.

Application information

In order to apply for the program, you must be enrolled at our university on September 1st. It is not required to be enrolled at the date of your application. Please contact the Center for International Students for more information about deadlines, etc.

In addition to academic achievement, the criteria for selecting scholarship recipients include social commitment and personal achievements, such as a student overcoming challenges or obstacles in his or her social or family background.
