Would you like to become a sponsor of a Germany Scholarship?

Supporting young and talented people so that they can stay focused on their studies: this is the idea behind the Germany Scholarship, which was created in the summer of 2010 by the federal government. The scholarships encourage young people, regardless of their background, to take up their studies and complete them successfully. The aim of the initiative is also to develop a new scholarship culture in Germany. Talented students receive support and simultaneously become visible as potential experts or managers for companies, foundations, and other organizations.

Companies, foundations, and private persons pay € 150 each month for at least one year to fund a Germany Scholarship.  The federal government matches this donation with € 150 each month. This amounts to € 3,600 per scholarship and per year of university study.

Who receives support?

The University of Potsdam wants to use the Germany Scholarship to support students who have outstanding grades (whether at school or university) and are in the standard period of study. International students, or students with special biographical challenges, can also receive support through a Germany Scholarship.

How can I become a sponsor?

  • You take on an annual scholarship in the amount of € 1,800 per scholarship, for one or several students.
  • You can specify the discipline in which you want to support students.
  • If you like, you can also set up a personal sponsorship.

What advantages do you have as a sponsor?

  • As a supporter, you are demonstrating responsibility by enabling the development of young talented students and of the future of our city and region.
  • You are helping to keep future experts in the country, thereby increasing Germany’s prospects in international competition.
  • We are inviting you to our celebration so that you can meet the students you have supported in person.
  • We mention your name in publications by the University of Potsdam.
  • Every donation is tax-deductible. For amounts up to € 200, the Tax Office only requires the submission of your bank records. For amounts over € 200, we will send you a donation receipt.
