How we support you with your studies

MAWISTA organises individual health insurance policies for students during their stay abroad. Our aim is not only to provide students with health insurance, but also to support them financially for the duration of their studies in Germany.

Our participation as a sponsor in the Deutschlandstipendium program provides students with a substantial financial support.

Frequently asked questions

Questions about the scholarship
What are the advantages of the Deutschlandstipendium?

The Deutschlandstipendium scholarship incentivises top performance, which our country depends on in global competition, and helps to secure the supply of skilled workers. It helps to raise the profile of universities and also strengthens cooperation in the regional environment: the federal government, sponsors and universities work together to support young people in developing their talents and enable them to concentrate fully on their studies. This also creates strong local networks that benefit Germany as a center of science and research.

Can the Deutschlandstipendium be received alongside BAföG?

Yes, the Deutschlandstipendium is a supplement to BAföG. BAföG, as an instrument of broad-based support, is designed to enable as many people as possible to pursue education and training. The Deutschlandstipendium specifically supports particularly talented students. Scholarship holders can combine both funding programs without any restrictions.

How are the scholarship holders selected?

The selection procedures are determined and publicised in detail by the universities. The scholarships are publicly advertised. The universities make the selection decisions. For some of the scholarships, sponsors can make a binding commitment to the field of study. Representatives of private sponsors can be appointed to selection committees in an advisory capacity.

How do the universities participate?

The universities assume the central mediating role for the Deutschlandstipendium. They approach potential sponsors, select the scholarship holders and organise the funding. If necessary, they also specify the requirements for the selection process and the criteria for awarding the scholarships.
