Since 2007, the university has had its own scholarship system. More than 2,600 particularly talented and committed students have already benefited from funding. Each of the scholarship programs has a specific focus and provides targeted support. Academic achievements, success in sports, or mastering challenging situations in life can qualify students for a scholarship.
As a foundation, company or private individual, you can also contribute to the personal and professional development of students by granting financial support. Both the Deutschland Scholarship and individual programs are suitable for this purpose.
The Deutschland Scholarship is a funding program for particularly high-performing and committed students that is run by the federal government. Every euro from private sponsors or funding organizations is matched by one euro from the federal government. In addition to financial funding, there is in many cases also non-material support in the form of internships or similar.
The Deutschland Scholarship rewards outstanding achievements at university or school – especially when they are linked to the respective student’s coping with difficult life situations. The aim is to support students who assume social responsibility at an early stage. Among other things, scholarship holders are involved in student initiatives and departmental student committees.
The University of Mannheim gives sponsors the opportunity to establish their own scholarship programs. In doing so, the university collaborates closely with its partners both in the development and implementation of the program.
The existing programs are advertised individually. They are linked to specific selection processes in which the respective sponsors and/
Current individual funding programs include the Spitzensport-Stipendium Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar and the Mannheim Scholarship.
