What does a scholarship pay for?
A scholarship (Latin scholarship, payment of an amount, pay, wages) is a financial or non-material support for artists, athletes, schoolchildren, students or young scientists (who are then referred to as scholarship holders) and as such is an essential element of the promotion of talented people.
Can one have more than one scholarship?
In principle, scholarships from the Studienstiftung, KAS, Cusanuswerk and Co. cannot be combined at will. In some cases, and after consultation with the respective foundation, double funding is possible, but you will only ever receive financial support from one gifted organization.
How long do you get a scholarship?
The funding usually lasts at least two semesters. But a longer duration is also possible. The maximum duration of the Deutschlandstipendium is until the end of the standard period of study. However, the university checks every year whether the student still meets the criteria for funding.
When to apply for a scholarship?
For example, you can only apply for the programs of the gifted education organizations if you still have at least two semesters ahead of you – in the bachelor’s degree, in the fourth semester at the latest. You also have the option of receiving a scholarship for just completing your degree.
