Deutschlandstipendien are awarded as part of a funding program of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Half of the scholarship is funded by the government and half by private sponsors. By co-financing these scholarships, the government aims to contribute to the establishment of a scholarship culture in Germany.

Scholarship holders receive 300 euros per month for one year. Saarland University awards the Deutschlandstipendien annually with the support of the StudienStiftungSaar, for which students in the Master's program at the Europa-Institut can also apply.

Every year, our alumni association EVER e.V. supports the so-called "Deutschlandstipendium" (Germany scholarship) for students in the Master's Program in European and International Law at the Europa-Institut. Deutschlandstipendien are financed half by the German government and half by a private sponsor. They are awarded for 1 year and students receive 300 Euros per month. If you would like to support EVER, you can donate directly to the alumni association:
