The Deutschlandstipendium at RUB has existed since 2011. You can find general information about the Deutschlandstipendium, including a greeting from the minister of education and research Bettina Stark-Watzinger.

Within the framework of this scholarship programme, the German government supports private donors to fund scholarships for young talents with outstanding academic or school records who show exceptional commitment to their community or social issues. Social, family and personal circumstances are also taken into account in the selection process.

Applicable programmes


Scholarship holders receive 300 euros per month for the duration of one year (from October through September). The amount comes from two sources: 150 euros are financed by a private donor, and the other 150 euros from the German government. A scholarship holder thus receives a total of 3,600 euros per year.


  • Excellent academic performance and outstanding social commitment;
  • In addition to a first degree programme, a second or postgraduate degree programme as well as a Master’s degree programme are also eligible for funding. 
  • Preference will be given to students who overcome so-called biographical obstacles (e.g. special familiar circumstances, health conditions, refugee background,…).
