Funding concept

Through the RWTH Education Fund students receive a 300 euros-per-month scholarship for one academic year. The university raises one half of this amount from private individuals, companies or foundations. The other half is provided by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Scholarship recipients

Excellent students who are distinguished by their talent and performance are sponsored. In addition to outstanding academic achievements, personal development, interdisciplinary, social commitment, and/or social background can also be taken into account.

Selection procedure

The annual selection of scholarship holders is based on expert guidance from the respective faculties. The university encourages scholarship holders to establish long-term ties with their sponsors and, therefore, expressly welcomes students to re-apply.
