The Scholarship 

The Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes (also known as The German Academic Scholarship Foundation) is Germany's largest, oldest and most prestigious scholarship foundation. It awards scholarships to outstanding students and aims to support "the university education of young people who, on account of their exceptional academic or artistic talents and their personalities, can be expected to make an outstanding contribution to society as a whole".  

Students in receipt of a Studienstiftung scholarship will receive a 25% tuition fee discount on the overseas fee rate. Please note this scholarship is only available for selected programmes in our Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and our Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. Programmes within our Faculty of Science and Engineering are not eligible for any discount. 

Students must meet the standards required by Studienstiftung, as well as all entry requirements for admissions to their chosen Queen Mary programme in order to be eligible for the scholarship.
