The Deutschlandstipendium is intended to support committed and qualified students who "have a great potential due to their previous commitment and career, taking into account social, family and personal circumstances, and who have already shown or have already provided outstanding achievements in their studies or professional life", Scholarship Regulations of the University of Bremen.
