Germany scholarships are a German government initiative. Half of the funding for the scholarship comes from the government. The other half is donated by private individuals and organisations. The scholarship is available at the State University of Music and Performing Arts in Mannheim (Staatliche Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Mannheim). It is worth 300 Euros a month. It is initially granted for one year but this can be extended.
All students at the university can apply for a Germany Scholarship. To get it the student must have an excellent academic track record. The student must also be able to show a social commitment.
