The Deutschlandstipendium scholarship: Promoting the best JGU talents

Support the excellent young talents at JGU through your business or organization or as a private individual. You'll be required to invest an amount of €1800 (tax deductible) to fund a scholarship. And the most exciting thing is that the German government will match your donation, so that the scholarship holder will receive €300 a month over the course of a year. Since the beginning of the program in 2011, we have been able to promote the work of more than 1000 outstanding and socially engaged JGU students with the help of a Deutschlandstipendium scholarship thanks to the support of our partners, alumni and friends. Please note that any size donation is welcome, and smaller amounts will be bundled into one scholarship.
