Private individuals

who sponsor the Germany Scholarship help to ensure that young academics are able to concentrate fully on their studies. This is especially important for many gifted students who come from less privileged families. The Germany Scholarship is one way for alumni and friends of the university to pay back some of the support they once received and ensure continued academic excellence at TUM. After all, the well-being of future generations is key to the success of a civil society that promotes active citizenship and responsibility.

Dr. Otto Majewski, member of the TUM University Council

“I am a strong believer in the concept of the Germany Scholarship because of the way it incorporates private funding to create a truly broad-based scholarship culture. In the interests of TUM’s gifted and highly committed students, I hope that large numbers of private sponsors will continue to support this initiative.”
