Info for sponsors

Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear friends of our university, dear alumni of Clausthal University of Technology,

Together with you, we would like to support particularly talented and committed people on their path to professional and social responsibility with a Deutschlandstipendium scholarship. With us, you have one of the most traditional technical universities at your side, which is characterized by a future-oriented and wide range of courses with a high degree of practical relevance.

The Deutschlandstipendium is an award for talented and high-achieving students. It supports them in their academic studies and gives them room for personal development and social commitment, thus helping the sponsored students to realize their full potential.

But the scholarship providers also benefit: Through the Deutschlandstipendium, they can promote young talent and come into contact early on with future specialists and managers who will receive an excellent education at Clausthal University of Technology. The Federal Ministry doubles every grant for the scholarship program.

Over 28,000 students nationwide benefited from a Deutschlandstipendium in 2019. Since the program was launched in 2011, companies, associations, foundations and private individuals have raised around 197 million euros.

You too can support the Deutschlandstipendium at Clausthal University of Technology and help to promote responsible and well-trained specialists and managers of tomorrow.

We look forward to a mutually beneficial collaboration.

    A one-year scholar ship for a studentof the TU Clausthal amounts to 1,800 Euro for a sponsor. The federal government doubles the amount and adds another 1,800 euros. Conclusion: The scholarship holder thus receives 3,600 euros for the year. In Clausthal, this amount roughly corresponds to the annual rental costs of a student apartment or about 10 euros per day for a good meal.

    But even small amounts of 50 or 100 euros help. The donations are added up.

    You can choose from which of our three faculties the scholarship holder should come.

    A committee of the TU Clausthal selects suitable students in a transparent procedure. In awarding the Deutschlandstipendium at Clausthal University of Technology, a concept was developed for this purpose that understands the concept of achievement in a broad sense. In line with the principle that "achievement is multifaceted," the selection of scholarship recipients takes into account not only high academic achievement (60%), but also social commitment (20%) and social criteria (20%).
