Give the gift of education instead of flowers for the 30th birthday of the University of Potsdam and give students the chance to grow.

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.

Thanks to our supporters , 115 scholarships could be awarded for the winter semester 21/22 and the summer semester 2022.
Become a sponsor and support young talents, because this is the most important investment for the future.

The Corona crisis is also a financial burden that turns the lives of those young people who are studying at the University of Potsdam upside down. Bitterly, necessary income to make a living and to study might not be generated. Help us not lose a bright head to this crisis by giving education instead of flowers for the University of Potsdam's 30th birthday.

The application period for the winter semester 2021/22 and summer semester 2022 has ended. The next application phase begins on July 1, 2022.
