Would you like to support clever minds?

With the Deutschlandstipendium, FAU is investing in the leaders of tomorrow, together with the federal German government and companies, foundations and private individuals. As a donor, you can support young academic talent and come into contact with highly qualified students.

How it works:

With a Deutschlandstipendium, you support young talents from all subject areas. The criteria assessed for the scholarships include academic achievement, voluntary work, international experience, and other personal qualities. The German government doubles your contribution.

Options for providing support

For companies, foundations and

private individuals

You can support a talented young student with just 150 euros per month. The government adds 150 euros a month.

Scholarship holders therefore receive 300 euros a month (3,600 euros per year).

For alumni

Our alumni can also provide support for outstanding students through the Deutschlandstipendium. FAU awards alumni scholarships financed from donations.

Donations of 150 euros and above are possible, and are doubled by the government.

Are you interested? Please feel free to get in touch, without any obligation.
