Your scholarship - more than just money

Make the most of this opportunity!

With the Deutschlandstipendium (DLS), you have an additional 300 euros per month available for one year. Congratulations! What next? The Deutschlandstipendium can do a lot more for you than fill your bank account. How? Ask your fellow scholarship holders.

Make more of the Deutschlandstipendium (DLS) – it can open doors, help building networks and enhance communication with your fellow scholarship holders.

There are many ideas about how to make the best of it. These ideas have been gathered in the “Mehr als nur Geld – das Beste aus dem Deutschlandstipendium machen” workshop (more than just money – make the best of the Deutschlandstipendium) attended by more than 150 scholarship holders. They came together at the start of 2016 to discuss and shape their ideas of a successful DLS year.

Shape your DLS year, give it purpose and make it a success.

Our tips for a successful DLS year:

Benefit from the experiences of other fellow scholarship holders. Network and contribute!

How is it done?
