WHU is a Pioneer in Awarding Scholarships

WHU is the only university in Rheinland-Pfalz to meet Ministry's goal.

A statistic on the Deutschlandstipendium of the Land Statistical Office of Rhineland-Palatinate (Statistisches Landesamt Rheinland-Pfalz) showed that WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management is the only university in Rhineland-Palatinate that meets the goal of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and supports at least 2 percent of all students through the Deutschlandstipendium.

"We are pleased that WHU can support its students with the Deutschlandstipendium and, with a share of 2.2 percent, has the highest share of holders of the Deutschlandstipendium of all universities in Rhineland-Palatinate," explains Professor Dr. Markus Rudolf, Dean of WHU. 

The scholarship holders are selected by the university's scholarship selection committee not only based on their excellent school-based and academic achievements but also based on the overall picture of these students, which is made up of performance, personal background and commitment to society.

Just as essential as the outstanding scholarship applicants are the sponsors of the Deutschlandstipendium. "We are very grateful to our sponsors, who consist of private donors, companies and WHU initiatives, for their contribution to education," announces WHU Dean Rudolf.
