Scholarships for bright minds

The scholarship system at the University of Mannheim was developed in 2007. Approx. 250 students are funded each year. Each scholarship has its own application process and is aimed at different target groups. Thus, the University of Mannheim offers one of the most differentiated scholarship systems among official higher education institutions in Germany. The Friends of the University of Mannheim have supported the scholarship system from the very beginning.

Currently, the association awards 15 Deutschland Scholarships and is therefore one of the largest providers of Deutschland Scholarships at the University of Mannheim. The students do not only receive financial support, but also access to the friends’ network and vast experience.

The annual scholarship ceremony provides a festive setting for the presentation of the certificates and the initial contact between sponsors and scholarship holders.

“An academic education is critical for a sustainable and successful development of business companies in which we have a lot of responsibility. We always need individuals with this qualification! The University of Mannheim contributes significantly to this, that is why I am happy to support it.”
