The University Scholarship Potsdam (USP) is awarded to high-performing students of the University of Potsdam within the framework of the Germany Scholarship Programme. The Germany Scholarship Programme is a study support programme, which was initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The goal of this initiative is to develop a new scholarship culture in Germany. Talented students are supported, social commitment is recognized and at the same time students are made visible as potential specialists and managers.
One half of the scholarship is financed by foundations, companies or private individuals and the other half by the Federal Government (BMBF). Bachelor and Master students of all faculties thus receive 300€ per month. In addition to financial support, the scholarship offers the opportunity to network with sponsors and other scholarship holders.
The application phase for funding from the winter semester 2020/21 has been completed. No new scholarships will be awarded for the summer semester 2021. Students and prospective students can reapply in July 2021.
