Selection procedure

The scholarship holders are selected by the scholarship selection committee after reviewing the submitted documents according to the above-mentioned criteria, usually in October. The selected scholarship holders will be notified.


Note on the standard period of study

The extension of the standard period of study issued by the HMWK is also applied to the application procedure for the Deutschlandstipendium. For students who were enrolled in SoSe20, WS20/21, SoSe21, WS21/22, the standard period of study is extended by the respective semesters. Thus, an extension of up to a maximum of 4 semesters can be credited. The awarding regulations for the Deutschlandstipendium, especially with regard to the possible maximum duration of funding, remain unaffected.

More than just financial support!

Germany Scholarships are funded in equal parts by the federal government and private sponsors to offer talented students the best conditions for their studies and careers. The sponsors include private individuals, companies, foundations and associations. This creates a growing network that can be very helpful on the way to professional life. Scholarship recipients often exchange ideas with their sponsors in person. In this way, the program offers much more than financial support.

At the HfMDK, the Society of Friends and Sponsors (GFF) ensures the financing of the Deutschlandstipendien. Together with private individuals, foundations and companies, a total of 98 scholarships could be awarded in the current academic year 2021/22. For 72 scholarships, the federal government took over the doubling "matching", for another 26 scholarships the GFF.
