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 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 , more than 100 scholarships can be awarded for the winter semester 22/23 and the summer semester 2023.
Become a sponsor and support young talents, because this is the most important investment for the future.

The application period for the winter semester 2022/23 and summer semester 2023 has ended. The next application phase will start July 1, 2023 online.
