With the University Scholarship Potsdam, students receive €300 per month for at least one year.

The University Scholarship Potsdam  (USP) is awarded to high-performing students of the University of Potsdam within the framework of the Germany Scholarship Program. The Germany Scholarship Program is a study support program, which was initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The goal of this initiative is to establish a 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 sponsors and the other half by the Federal Government (BMBF). Bachelor and Master students of all faculties receive 300€ per month. In addition to the financial support, the scholarship offers the opportunity to network with sponsors and other scholarship holders.

Thanks to our supporters , about 100 scholarships have been awarded for the winter semester 23/24 and the summer semester 2024.
Become a sponsor and support young talents for the most important investment for the future: education.

The application phase for the university scholarship for the winter semester 2024/25 and the summer semester 2025 starts on July 1, 2024.
