Fund­ing through the Deutsch­land­sti­pen­dium

150 Euros from private sponsors – 150 Euros from the federal government
Each scholarship is co-financed by private sponsors and the federal government. The university raises 1.800 Euros per student from companies, foundations or private individuals. This amount then gets doubled from federal resources.

How the Deutschlandstipendium works (in German)

What are the reasons for this?

  • You get to know motivated and responsible students personally during your studies and present your company as a potential employer.
  • You promote networking at the HNU and strengthen the university and business location of Ulm/Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences.
  • You enable students to spend their time studying because you make a significant contribution to securing their livelihood. 
  • They contribute significantly to the development of a scholarship culture in Germany.
  • They not only attract the attention of the best students, but also that of the public.
  • You will receive a donation receipt, because participation in the Deutschlandstipendium is considered a donation and is therefore tax-deductible.

Which disciplines can be funded?

In principle, our aim is to distribute the scholarships as equally as possible among all faculties/departments, which is guaranteed by a high number of scholarships not tied to a specific subject. However, it is also possible for the scholarships to be subject bound. The following subject areas (some with special emphases) are offered at Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences:

  • Business Studies
  • Health Management
  • Information Management
  • Industrial Engineering and Management
  • Business Information Technology

What is to be done?

They determine the duration of funding, which must be at least one year. Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences informs the students, selects scholarship holders according to defined criteria and organises the funding.
