Almost 7,000 TUM students have received the Deutschlandstipendium since 2011. Thus, they not only received financial support, but also access to a unique network of supporters. Together with the TUM Deutschlandstipendium Aktive-, Alumniund Förderverein e.V., TUM has now succeeded in raising almost 13,000 euros from 250 donors via crowdfunding - enough funds for more than 14 additional Deutschlandstipendien.
The Deutschlandstipendium supports young people who not only excel at school or university, but who have already taken on social responsibility or had to overcome particular obstacles during their education. With around 7,000 scholarships awarded since 2011, TUM is the university that can support the most students in Germany.
Successful Matching Challenge
In order to be able to support even more students, TUM and the TUM Deutschlandstipendium Aktive-, Alumniund Förderverein e.V. once again called for a Matching Challenge. On the donation platform betterplace.org, supporters were able to jointly finance Deutschlandstipendiums for TUM students. More than 250 donors participated. A total of 12,950 euros was raised. The three co-donors, the Adolf Feizlmayr Foundation, QuantCo Deutschland GmbH and the TUM University Foundation, doubled this sum, which was then matched by the federal government. More than 14 additional scholarships can thus be made available.
Start of the application period for the winter semester
Almost 1,000 new scholarship holders were supported in the past winter semester - a new record. Again, as many talented, high-achieving and committed students as possible are to receive the Deutschlandstipendium in the coming semester. Applications are open to students from June 5 to 18, 2023; high school graduates who would like to begin their studies in the winter semester can apply between July 17 and 30, 2023.
The selected scholarship holders will not only receive 300 euros per month for one year, but close mentoring by the sponsors will also give them access to a unique network, valuable contacts, and valuable experience that will support their successful studies and career entry.
All information about the application can be found on the website on the Deutschlandstipendium at TUM.
