If you’re enrolled in a regular degree programme at the FernUniversität in Hagen, whether full-time or part-time, you might want to look into applying for a bursary through the Deutschlandstipendium scheme. This year’s round was opened on the 15th of July, and all applications are to be submitted by the 31st of August.
Top of the criteria list is a record of good marks and a propensity for making positive contributions to the community. If this describes you, you just might be in with a chance. Unlike other scholarships, the Deutschlandstipendium award does not discriminate against students whose parents are in a particular tax bracket or students with other sources of income, and neither does the bursary count towards BAföG. The €300/month bursary is granted for one year at a time, and students may apply again the following year if necessary.
Launched in 2011, the Deutschlandstipendium award is targeted at high-achievers. Half the funds come from the federal government, and the rest consists of contributions from the private sector as well as generous individuals.
Should you be awarded one of these God-sent awards, you’ll also get the chance to meet the sponsors and other bursary holders and will be invited to various events hosted by the FernUniversität in Hagen.
