Scholarships at the University of Mannheim

Scholarships make an important contribution to a program of study. It is not just the financial aspect that is interesting, but also the non-material support that accompanies it. A scholarship that is used efficiently can provide important support when beginning a career.

The scholarship system at the University of Mannheim was developed in 2007. Currently, around 250 students receive funding. The University of Mannheim has one of the most differentiated scholarship systems among public higher education institutions in Germany, and cooperates with a large network of partners and sponsors. Students can benefit and gain diverse experience from this network. As well as the financial support, students are given important networking opportunities. Additionally, there are scholarships that are awarded independently.

A separate application process is in place for each scholarship through which students and degree applicants can apply for a grant.
