Requirements, selection/exclusion criteria

Only students enrolled at the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt are entitled to apply for a Deutschlandstipendium. Scholarships are awarded according to academic talent and performance. In addition to the achievements made so far and the applicants’ personal background, social commitment, the willingness to assume responsibility or special social, family or personal circumstances are to be taken into account.

Academic performance and talent are proven by the grades (higher than 2.00) so far achieved and the ECTS credits so far earned. For first-semester students, the grade of their higher education entrance qualification is decisive (for details see the Regulation). A bonus is granted for special social circumstances and/or social commitment. The final selection is made after a selection interview.

In order to regulate the awarding of a Deutschlandstipendium following the National Scholarship Act, the University Management has issued Regulation for the awarding.

Exclusion criterion

Students who already receive a talent- or merit-based scholarship that reaches an average of at least 30 € per month are not eligible for a Deutschlandstipendium. Examples of such funding include scholarships and grants from the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes, the Max-Weber-Programm (material part of the scholarship), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), etc. For a more detailed list, please refer to www.stipendiumplus.de or www.begabtenfoerderung.de (linked pages available in German only).
