A scholarship is financial support which students receive and do not have to repay. They are not only awarded for high academic achievement, although usually outstanding grades are a requirement. Often political or social involvement also plays a role.

Germany Scholarship (Deutschlandstipendium)

The Germany Scholarship supports particularly gifted students whose background suggests that they will be particularly successful in their studies and later career. Besides outstanding academic grades, commitment to social causes and special personal achievements, for example the overcoming of personal obstacles in ones academic background, are also taken into consideration in awarding the Germany Scholarships. The scholarship is awarded for a minimum of 2 semesters and is normally only granted for the duration of the regular study period.
