An Overview of Scholarship Providers
A total of 33 providers (companies, foundations, associations, individuals) sponsored the 73 Deutschlandstipendien available at Universität Hamburg in 2017. Below a few in alphabetical order:
“For years, d-fine GmbH has owed its success to newcomers to the profession with outstanding university degrees, especially in physics and mathematics. It is therefore only natural for us to support talented STEM students with a Deutschlandstipendium.”
Dr. Jörn Rank, partner
"I support the Germany Scholarship because Germany depends on highly skilled IT specialists. Future consultants and developers need freedom and support to deepen their knowledge and develop their personalities. Only with creative minds can Germany advance. This is especially true for IT management." Peter Langner
Dabelstein & Passehl (law firm)
ARNECKE SIBETH DABELSTEIN supports the Deutschlandstipendium program to promote the unique specialization in maritime law offered at Universität Hamburg for which our partner Prof. Dr. Dieter Schwampe gives lectures on maritime insurance and transport law. It also wishes to ensure outstanding students financial security during their studies. The Deutschlandstipendium program allows us to introduce talented young researchers to our law firm and provide access to the specialist networks in the metropolitan region.
“We support the Germany Scholarship because as business professionals we are not just responsible for the opportunities and challenges of business, but also for society. It is our aim to promote excellent young people.” Die Familienunternehmer
Edmund Siemers Foundation
Why does the Edmund Siemers Foundation support the Deutschlandstipendium program at Universität Hamburg?
As a science funding foundation with particularly close ties to Universität Hamburg (Edmund Siemers is the benefactor of the University’s first lecture building), supporting its students is important to us.
Supporting particularly talented students at Universität Hamburg reinforces a performance mentality and industry’s interest in the talented young people educated here.
The scholarship also makes it possible for the more exotic, less economically relevant disciplines for which funding is rarely available to provide merit scholarships and raise their public profile. Universität Hamburg offers a range of linguistic and cultural degree programs unparalleled in Germany. Foundations in particular are invited to support outstanding areas of research being conducted university wide or in the individual faculties by sponsoring a Deutschlandstipendium.
Europa-Kolleg Hamburg is internationally recognized for education and research in the field of integration. With the Institute for European Integration and two master’s degree programs, it offers an interdisciplinary platform for research, teaching, and learning in European studies. Founded in 1953, Europa-Kolleg is a non-profit foundation under private law. The foundation promotes research and academic teaching on European integration and international cooperation.
With its one-year interdisciplinary master’s degree in European and European legal studies, the Europa-Kolleg cooperates with Universität Hamburg to teach students from around the world about the legal, economic, and political aspects of European integration and selected specialist areas (the EU as a political actor, the EU’s external relations, companies as economic actors, EU law).
The exciting Deutschlandstipendium program is a wonderful opportunity for our students (99 percent from abroad) to network with students from other disciplines and representatives from funding institutions. In addition to receiving financial support for their studies, they can familiarize themselves with important economic and cultural institutions in northern Germany.
The Europa-Kolleg Hamburg sponsors seven scholarships.
"At Funk, we support the Germany Scholarship because it provides an excellent opportunity to reduce the financial burden of dedicated students who are studying subjects that are interesting to us. It also grants them insights into our frequently unknown yet challenging profession as insurance brokers and risk consultants for companies in industry, service, trade, health care, and the real estate industry. "
Mr. Christoph Bülk, Managing Director
Freundes- und Förderverein Chemie der Universität Hamburg e.V.
The society of friends of the Universität Hamburg’s Department of Chemistry provides moral and financial support for research and teaching in the University’s Department of Chemistry. Among other activities, it grants scholarships to students and doctoral researchers. Since 2019, the society has contributed to the Deutschlandstipendium (Germany Scholarship) with 5 scholarships total for students of chemistry (2), pharmacy, molecular life sciences, and food chemistry (1 each).

Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung
Since its founding in 1907, the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung (Hamburg Scientific Foundation) has supported academic research and its dissemination in Hamburg. It focuses on providing swift and effective support for small and medium-sized projects. As an independent non-profit organization, it is financed through its own assets as well as through donations and endowments from Hamburg citizens.
The Foundation takes part in the Deutschlandstipendium program which it sees as central to encouraging academic funding in Hamburg. The Foundation sponsors the scholarships to support less affluent talented young students.
Ulrike Jackson und Katharina Bauckhage
“Our father, Prof. Dr. Karl-Ernst Schenk, was Director of the Institute of International Economics at Universität Hamburg from 1977 until his retirement. Afterwards and until his death, he remained in close contact with his institute, former doctoral students, colleagues, and peers. In memory of our father and his bond with Universität Hamburg, we are now supporting a talented young student. It is a real pleasure to meet the scholarship holders at events organized by the University.”
“With our Germany Scholarships we support students with two characteristics: They demonstrate outstanding achievement in their subjects and are also unconventional thinkers interested in other subjects. Sound expertise is important, but today new ideas and innovations result primarily from interdisciplinary collaboration. And that’s what we want to support with our scholarships.” Dr. Henneke Lütgerath
Susanne and Michael Krause
"We saw with our own children that moral and financial support makes learning easier and more successful. The Germany Scholarship allows us to give other talented and dedicated young people the opportunity to study worry-free, even when their families are unable to or can only provide insufficient support."
“We fund the Germany Scholarship because our foundation supports motivated young people who would otherwise be unable to study due to financial constraints. In this way, we hope to empower and motivate our younger generation, and also support their engagement.” Hemshorn Foundation
Momeni Group Foundation
“The MOMENI Group Foundation advocates for students with outstanding academic records and from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds by supporting scholarships for university study. The Deutschlandstipendium’s tried-and-true concept is a perfect fit for the MOMENI Group Foundation, which is why we support young talent on their educational journey at Universität Hamburg—regardless of field or background. All potential should be tapped, and financial difficulties should not stand in the way of the desire to study.
Dr. Martina Momeni, chair of the board
MLP Finanzdienstleistung AG
“With our involvement in the Deutschlandstipendium program, we are continuing our commitment to students. MLP has been involved in university and career funding for decades and, among others, awards an overseas scholarship through its Join the Best internship program. For us, it is an integral part of our social commitment,” says Thomas Breiding, Head of the Corporate University at MLP. MLP has supported students in Hamburg and Germany with Deutschlandstipendien since 2012. It is currently sponsoring a total of 50 Deutschlandstipendien.
Novatec Consulting GmbH
“At Novatec, we believe it is our social responsibility to become involved with our future junior staff even during their studies. The scholarship holders are impressive, with excellent academic achievements, strong social engagement, and personalities. By awarding scholarships, we also hope to further strengthen our already excellent relationship with the universities.” Stefan Schulz
"We support the Deutschlandstipendium (Germany Scholarship) [u1] because journalism, more than many other professions, needs diversity. Accessibility should be determined by drive, intelligent analysis, and strong writing skills, not your bank account." Dr. Felix Blum
Manuela and Jan Boje Steffens
“We support the Germany Scholarship because we hope to make university studies accessible for motivated students with a refugee background. In addition to the financial support, the University’s accompanying program facilitates personal contact and mutual exchange between scholarship recipients.”
University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf / Freundes- und Förderkreis des Universitätsklinikums Eppendorf e. V.
The Freundes- und Förderkreis des Universitätsklinikums Eppendorf e. V. supports the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf as a maximum care hospital, place of medical research, and facility for the training of scientists and medical professionals. One of the Society’s key objectives is to support highly motivated and socially committed talented young medicine and dentistry students.
University Society Hamburg
The University Society Hamburg was founded in 1922 as the Society of Friends for the Universities in Hamburg. Its aim was “cooperation between the University and the citizens of Hamburg, and above all Hamburg’s merchants both for the benefit of science and practical professions.”
The University Society Hamburg has been supporting, funding, and accompanying projects at Universität Hamburg ever since. These include career mentoring for talented female students (UNICA) of the Center for Expert Mentoring and the Friendship Society, which actively encourages exchange between international students and Hamburg residents.
It confers several academic awards.
The University Society Hamburg has supported the Deutschlandstipendium program in a number of ways since 2015 and also sponsors nine scholarships financed through smaller and larger donations from the Society’s members.
Wirbelwerk - Neurosurgery - Dr. Carsten Stüer
The Wirbelwerk neurosurgery practice takes a holistic approach to alleviating pain and maintaining mobility. In addition to purely medical matters, we also take family, friends, society, psychology, and work into account.
Beside conservative therapy, we treat spinal diseases surgically. From minimally-invasive techniques to complex reconstructive procedures, Wirbelwerk offers the entire spectrum of modern spinal procedures.
Wirbelwerk is socially committed and supports the Deutschlandstipendium program in the belief that good education deserves support. This is why we help take the load off a young medical student focusing on his demanding studies.
