The Germany Scholarship –
Supporting young talent at WHU.

The Germany Scholarship is a joint initiative of the federal government and private sponsors to award scholarships to committed and talented students. Thanks to a large number of donors (companies, associations, foundations, and private individuals), a steadily growing group of WHU students have been supported with a Deutschlandstipendium scholarship in recent years.

Double your donation – Become a sponsor of the Germany Scholarship!

Numerous donors (companies, associations, foundations and private individuals) have supported almost 180 WHU students with a Deutschlandstipendium scholarship over the past 12 years.

The Deutschlandstipendium provides students with 300 euros per month. One half is provided by the federal government, the other half by private sponsors.

With your contribution, we would also like to support as many WHU students as possible with the Deutschlandstipendium.

In their own words – Testimonials from sponsors and students.

Ferry Heilemann
Managing Partner, AENU
"I was fortunate and thankful to have a Konrad Adenauer Scholarship while I was studying at WHU and am therefore very glad to support Students through the German Scholarship now myself.
People development and enabling the right culture was already at Forto a passion of mine, and plays an even bigger role at AENU. We are contributing to transitioning from a financial capitalist system to an impact capitalism that inherently drives environmental sustainability and social equality."
Linda Truong (MSc 2015)
Former scholarship holder
"The opportunity to engage in a variety of extracurriculars was one of the top reasons for me to apply at WHU. Upon arrival, I quickly engaged in numerous activities starting Day 1 (e.g., WHU Euromasters, WHU Students Help, SensAbility - The WHU Impact Summit) and continued to do so during my five years in Vallendar. Without the help of the scholarship, I would not have had the chance to focus on my studies and simultaneously participate in these activities this freely. Besides the financial benefit of the scholarship, it brought meaningful new connections: my sponsors were a WHU alumni couple who I'm still in touch with today."
Erich Forst (BSc 2025)
Scholarship holder
"Receiving the Deutschlandstipendium and the recognition of my previous achievements is a great motivation to tackle new challenges with constant ambition. It enables me to continue making a positive impact through social commitment alongside my studies. Broadening my perspective through the exchange with sponsors gives me new ideas for the time after my studies."

Information for students

Assessing more than just performance - Supporting various circumstances. 

The Germany Scholarship considers the wider circumstances of the applicant, beyond their academic performance. Special achievements, work experience, extracurricular activities, and personal circumstances such as illness, the care of relatives, a single parent, or migration background are all factored into the overall assessment. The application process begins mid/end of May, and the deadline is beginning of July each year.
