The scholarship program of Technische Universität Chemnitz

Funding of students within the scope of the national scholarship program

Since the summer semester 2011 Technische Universität Chemnitz has been promoting students in the context of the national scholarship program. The aim is to support excellent and highly talented students.

Anybody who wants to cross disciplinary boundaries and searches for well-guided and practice-oriented studies on a modern campus as well as for outstanding research conditions makes the right decision to choose Technische Universität Chemnitz, which links technical and natural sciences as well as mathematics closely to economics, humanities and social sciences.

* “TU Chemnitz has committed itself to the well-directed promotion of young scientists,” said the Acting Rector Prof. Dr. Andreas Schubert.. “It is thus in our interest to support young people financially together with sponsors under the new scholarship program.”

How big is the scholarship?
The amount of the scholarship is € 300 monthly. One half is born by the private sector – by the economy, by foundations, by former graduates or other sponsors - the other half is financed by the Federal Government.

How long is the scholarship granted for?
The scholarship is initially granted for one year. An annual review of the performance of the scholarship holder is required for the possible continuation of the scholarship. Grants will be paid for no longer than the duration of the standard time to graduate in each course of studies.

Who can apply?
Anybody who is enrolled in the first or in a higher semester at TU Chemnitz can be sponsored. A funding is excluded if the student has already received a gifted or merit-based material support in accordance with the Scholarship Program Act - Stipendienprogramm-Gesetz (StipG) of more than 30 € (average) monthly (avoidance of double funding).

What are the application requirements?
The scholarships are awarded according to talent and performance. In addition, social commitment, willingness to take over responsibility as well as special personal or family circumstances adjudicate upon funding. Age and nationality are irrelevant. Detailed information on the application and the application process are available here.

Where and how can I apply?
The application and selection process generally takes place in the winter semester. Since funding is already available immediately after the award procedure of the last winter semester 2013/2014, TU Chemnitz can additionally offer some scholarships in the summer semester in 2014.
