Assistance for Teaching Degree Students
You care about school? Apply for assistance under the ‘Studienkolleg’ programme!
You can’t have good education without teachers who are passionate about what they do. This is why the SDW Foundation of German Business and the Robert Bosch Stiftung have launched the Studienkolleg - Begabtenförderung für Lehramtsstudierende scholarship programme that supports teachers-to-be who believe that teaching is more than just a job.
To find out more about this one-of-a-kind programme and hear scholarship holders discuss their idea of good education, watch the Studienkolleg promo video (available in German only).
A joint initiative of the SDW Foundation of German Business and the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the Studienkolleg scholarship programme provides students with both financial and non‑financial support.
Why is the Studienkolleg different?
The programme is not just about teaching. It’s about re-thinking the nature of classroom instruction. Teaching degree students get the opportunity to meet enthusiastic individuals who have a vision for tomorrow’s classroom and know how to inspire others with it. A wide range of seminars equips scholarship holders with a thorough understanding of what it means to be a teacher and helps them develop on a personal level. In addition to this non-financial support, students receive a monthly payment of €300. Additional funding may be available in some circumstances. The actual scholarship amount depends on the holder’s income; the maximum amount is €649 a month. The scholarship is non-repayable.
Applications will also be accepted from individuals who will start their programme in the upcoming winter semester. The competent liaison at your university will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Applications for 2018 will close on 7 May 2018.
