Information for international students

Please notice:
The scholarship "Deutschlandstipendium" is not a full scholarship for obtaining the Bachelor or Master degree. It does not include general living costs, accommodation, flight tickets etc. The scholarship is only awarded to enrolled students and people who start studying on winter semester 2019/20. Applying for Deutschlandstipendium does not mean you apply for studying at Ruhr-Universität Bochum

The Scholarship Fund is going into its eleventh round: from the Winter Semester 2019/2020 we will once again be awarding scholarships from the national scholarship programme (Deutschlandstipendium). Students who perform outstandingly academically and are involved in special social engagement can each receive € 300 per month for a year from the Ruhr-Universität Scholarship Fund.
The scholarships are made available by companies, institutions and individuals, and the amounts are matched by funds from the national government. With the help of our sponsors, we want to contribute to developing a scholarship culture in our country and increasing the desire of talented young people to study.

The goal of this scholarship program is the improvement of your study conditions. Ideally, it should enable you to fully focus on your studies. Additionally, it has the purpose to establish contact with companies, foundations, associations and alumni, whose dedication makes this scholarship possible in the first place. At several events you will also be able to network and exchange experiences with other Deutschlandstipendium scholars.
