Both TUM students and our partners in industry share in the benefits of the Deutschlandstipendium scholarship program. It enables talented students to tap their potential and puts our industry partners early on in contact with highly-qualified specialists and leaders of tomorrow. The traditionally close ties of the TUM to industry partners and civic-minded foundations have made it an exceptionally successful participating member of the scholarship program.
TUM’s success as a member of the Deutschlandstipendium program is indicative of its commitment to supporting its students’ achievement. “We do our utmost to award as many scholarships as possible,” says TUM President Wolfgang A. Herrmann in an interview with the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). This support is what attracts talented young students to the university and enables them to tap their potential to its fullest. Half of the scholarships awarded by the TUM in 2012 within the scope of the Deutschlandstipendium program were awarded to women. Its goal is to become the most attractive technical university for female students.To the full Interview (available in German only)
