Record number of Deutschlandstipendium grants at TUM

The number of Deutschlandstipendium grants at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has reached a new high. In winter semester 2022/2023 TUM students received 976 of these grants, more than ever before. And the number of sponsors has risen this year as well, totaling 126. Since the grant's launch in 2011 approximately 7000 TUM students have received financial aid from the program, amounting to a total funding amount of around 20 million euros.

During the annual celebration at the TUM Garching campus university President Prof. Thomas F. Hofmann commented: "I am especially pleased that in the meantime former grant recipients are now themselves among the sponsors. This is a true intergenerational contract at work! I'd like to thank everyone for their outstanding support and encourage everyone to join us in continuing this success story."

The grant brings recipients 300 euros each month. Half of the amount is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, with the other half provided by donors. These sponsors are foundations, associations, companies and private individuals. They provide the students with more than just financial support, they are also available as mentors and offer their professional, personal and worldly experience to the talented young individuals.
