Promoting young talent

Deutschlandstipendium is a scholarship for especially gifted, high-achieving students. It gives them the space to develop their personal talents and engage with society. As a sponsor, you can benefit by establishing valuable connections with highly qualified students. Now is the time to act!

With its transparent selection system, Deutschlandstipendium is an efficient way to support talented young scientists. And as a bonus, the German government will match your donation.

Sharing the costs
You can sponsor a scholarship by donating as little as EUR 150 per month. The German government will match this amount, which means that every scholarship recipient will get EUR 300 per month (EUR 3,600 per year).

In tune with your interests
You can specify that the scholarship you are sponsoring is awarded for a particular discipline or course. Over two thirds of scholarships are awarded for a particular discipline.

Transparent selection process
TUM selects the recipients under the scholarship program, ensuring that the award process is fair and transparent.

How your sponsorship helps
You provide both financial and non-financial support to a high-achieving student for one year. The sponsorship allows talented young scientists to develop their potential to the full.

Our concept
The concept underpinning Deutschlandstipendium embraces a wider definition of the term “achievement”. Alongside purely academic achievement (60%), we also take contribution to society (20%) and social criteria (20%) into account.

Companies, foundations and private individuals benefit from sponsoring young talent on a number of counts – regardless of whether the gesture was inspired by a desire to contribute to society or to network with high-achieving students.

Exclusive connections
Thanks to one-to-one matching of sponsors with scholarship recipients, you have an opportunity to develop a relationship with the students you are sponsoring during the scholarship year (and beyond). This is often a highly rewarding experience for private sponsors, also giving companies an opportunity to build ties with the outstanding talent of tomorrow. Complementing your financial contribution, you can also provide non-financial support and thus spark interest in your company or the work that your foundation is engaged in.

You can take part in a variety of events bringing together scholarship recipients, sponsors and university representatives. This enables you to tap into the network of one of the world’s most distinguished technical universities.

PR work
Your sponsorship will covered with our press and public relations work and communicated, for example, on our website, in our donors magazine and at the annual official ceremony. You can use the Germany Scholarship logo to signal your contribution to the education of young talent.

Tax benefits
You can usually offset your contribution against taxes.

Annual official ceremony
The official ceremony for the awarding of certificates gives you an opportunity to present yourself and meet the students you are sponsoring for the first time.

Bonus for companies: Recruiting new talent
Your support will be targeted at high-achieving students from disciplines that match the profile of your company. In addition, you will be investing in Germany’s future standing in the world of industry and commerce.

Bonus for foundations: Bringing your mission to life
Reflecting the mission defined in your articles of association, you can target your efforts at students who match your overarching philosophy. And you save time in the process – TUM’s experienced team will manage the entire application process following our proven protocol.
