Scholarships

The majority of scholarships are granted by organizations that specialize in the promotion of talented students or pupils (so-called ‘Begabtenförderungswerke’). Competition for these scholarships is in most cases nationwide and multidisciplinary.  For a more valid estimation of individual chances applicants should know that ‘talent’ is not necessarily synonymous with an average grade of 1.0. Skills that are needed in leadership and decision-making positions and especially social engagement are also relevant. This applies, for instance, to activities in politics, churches, sport clubs, associations for nature conservation as well as to community service activities in a social institution. The financial situation of the applicant’s parents can also be of relevance.
