What are the criteria for awarding the scholarships?

  • Severe disability
  • Migrant background

The deduction is only made once, even if several of the criteria are met.We would like to point out expressly that the Germany Scholarship will not be awarded if you are already receiving talent and performance-dependent financial support from another institution, exceeding € 30.00 per month.
