Scholarships for first-year students
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering grants three scholarships to first-year students to make it easier for them to start their studies. Two Talentscout scholarships and one equal opportunity scholarship. The scholarships help students to concentrate on their studies during the introductory phase. The total funding for all scholarships is currently 3,600 Euro each, which is paid out in twelve monthly rates of 300 Euro during the first two semesters of study.
In cooperation with the NRW-Talent Scouting, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering awards one so called Deutschland-Stipendium (Germany Scholarship) each to two first-year students who are accompanied by the Talentscouting and enroll in one of the faculty’s degree programs. Contact the talent scout at your school (NRW only) to find out more about the scholarship.
Every winter semester, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering awards a scholarship to a female first-year student. Criteria are a high school diploma with an overall grade of 2.0 or better and a good academic and, if applicable, extracurricular performance in STEM subjects. You can apply for the scholarship at the beginning of each winter semester. The application deadline is the enrollment deadline in the respective semester. You can find out when that is by clicking here. To apply, please email us your high school diploma and other evidence of STEM experience. Also talk to the student advisor to learn more about the scholarship.
Scholarships for students
In cooperation with companies, private persons or partly from own donations, up to 20 Germany scholarships are awarded to particularly successful students every winter semester, seven of which are sponsored by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering alone from its very own funds. The students are preferably in their 3rd semester. Thus, the Deutschlandstipendium offers a good follow-up opportunity for the above-mentioned scholarships for first-year students. Financial need also plays a role in the selection process.
