Performance and Social Commitment: Deutschlandstipendien Awarded

Scholarship for demonstrating outstanding performance and commitment to society: 126 students at the University of Bremen receive a Deutschlandstipendium. It includes financial support and a comprehensive accompanying program.

“I warmly congratulate all scholarship holders and thank all sponsors for their support,” said Vice President for Research and Transfer of the University of Bremen Professor Michal Kucera at the award ceremony on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, at the Bremen Metropol Theater. “I am delighted that the program recognizes not only special achievements but also social commitment. Many of our students achieve outstanding results in education and society at an early age and impress with their willingness to take responsibility for themselves and others. With the Deutschlandstipendium, we can specifically support these particularly committed individuals and continue to encourage them to perform well.”

A Special Feature of the University of Bremen

The University of Bremen has been awarding the Deutschlandstipendium since 2011. The 126 scholarship holders are part of around 29,000 students currently receiving funding throughout Germany. The German federal government, companies, associations, foundations, and private individuals jointly support high-performing students as part of the Deutschlandstipendium. It serves as a way for civil society to assume responsibility for talented young people and make an important contribution to the future. Scholarship recipients receive 300 euros per month for one year. One-half is paid by the federal government and the other half by private sponsors. A special feature of the University of Bremen is that the selection criteria are based not only on academic performance, but also on social commitment. Scholarships are awarded by a scholarship council composed of students and lecturers of the university.

Good Grades and Students’ Social Commitment

Many scholarship providers have been committed to the Deutschlandstipendium for many years and are convinced of the holistic and sustainable concept of the program. “One focus of the OLB Foundation is the promotion of science,” says Karin Katerbau, Chairman of the Board of the OLB Foundation. “With the Deutschlandstipendium, we support young students who drive our region forward. That is why we are involved with one scholarship each at the universities and colleges in north-western Germany – and this has been the case for many years in Bremen.”

Doing Something Impactful for Society

“It is a great honor for me to be selected for the Deutschlandstipendium for another year,” says Mia Thye. “In addition to being able to focus fully on my studies, I am very grateful to do something that I enjoy and am recognized and appreciated for. I am very much looking forward to gaining further experience and deepening the connections I’ve made.”

Workshop Offers

The scholarship award ceremony also marks the start of another round of nonmaterial accompanying activities for the scholarship recipients from the University of Bremen. Workshops on soft skills are offered with the intent of helping them find their way around life and work issues. Offers from sponsors provide insights into working environments and access to valuable networks. With the help of this support, students can make even greater use of their own potential as well the networking opportunities at hand.
