With the Deutschlandstipendium program, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is implementing the idea of public-private partnership in the tertiary education sector: available state funds are paid out in the form of scholarships if the university obtains a counterpart from third parties. In total, the scholarship of 300 euros per month supports students who achieve very good academic results, assume social or political responsibility or successfully overcome obstacles in their own lives and education. The HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd has participated in the German Scholarship since the start-up phase in 2012. Carl Zeiss AG and the Uli & Christine Wohlgemuth Foundation are currently sponsoring the program.
The Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd regularly invites applications for German scholarships. The funding is based on the Stipendienprogramm-Gesetz StipG of the Bundesrgierung (German Federal Government). Applications are open to students who meet the admission requirements, are already enrolled at the HfG, and are within the standard study period or are about to begin their studies at the HfG. The next announcement will probably be published here in the summer semester.
If you have any questions about the German Scholarship at the HfG, please send an email toed.dneumg-gfh@muidnepitsdnalhcstued.
