Promote young talent. Provide them with opportunities!
The University of Siegen is a place of study for
talented young people who must support themselves while
completing their studies and fulfilling various
requirements such as experience abroad, receiving good
grades and attaining practical experience. The awarding of
scholarships supports high-performing and committed
students of your alma mater. The aim is to support
students, without regard to their personal or financial
background, in their academic and personal development. Our
society relies on young people with innovative ideas having
the opportunity to assert themselves in the competitive
world of international business and research.
We strive to support and promote young talents on their career path through our alumni network. Our alumni can highlight their commitment to students and their university by personally sponsoring scholarships. Become a part of it!
The University of Siegen scholarship programme
Your commitment to students of your alma mater!
The scholarship programme of the University of Siegen is
comprised of two funds that provide students with financial
and moral support: the Student Support Fund and the
Deutschlandstipendium (Germany Grant).
The Student Support Fund sponsors students for two semesters by providing them with 2,500 euros in total. This funding is available for covering study-related costs such as purchasing textbooks and other study materials, or for attending academic conferences. This scholarship is given with the recipient's personal and financial situation taken into account. You are able to contribute a discretionary amount to this fund. We will collect all of these donations and allocate them as 2,500 euro scholarships per student for two semesters.
With the Deutschlandstipendium (Germany grant), students are funded for two semesters with 300 euros per month being provided for a total of 3,600 euros. As a private donor who provides 1,800 euros per scholarship, you lay the foundation for funding a student for two semesters. This sum you provide will be matched by public funds, thereby allowing the recipient to receive 300 euros per month for an entire year! Are you particularly interested in promoting students involved in certain disciplines? Together with the university, you can set some criteria for the funding of a Germany scholarship to decide which students you would like to support. You can get to know the recipient of the scholarship personally and thus get an insight into current teaching and research at your alma mater.
The financial support from both funds is linked to non-material support for scholarship recipients in the form of opportunities for personal development and assistance in applying for a job. This kind of support can include workplace visits, application training, meetings with other scholarship recipients and networking.

"Sponsor a seat" campaign: »Leerstühle besetzen«
Promote talented students by sponsoring seats in the Audimax or in the Friedrich-Schadeberg-Hörsaal, in the new lecture hall building at the Campus Unteres Schloss.
As a special type of donation, the University of Siegen
offers the opportunity to sponsor seats. With the symbolic
purchase of a seat in a lecture hall, you can show your
commitment to the Siegen Student Support Fund, which
receives the proceeds from this campaign. A seat can be
sponsored for 250 euros which is then given a plaque with
the name of the benefactor, thus documenting their
commitment to the students of the University of Siegen.
»Leerstühle« - empty seats - in the Audimax: The "sponsor a seat" campaign »Leerstühle besetzen« was launched after the renovation of the Audimax on the 26th of October 2007. Since then, friends, alumni, lecturers and students as well as local entrepreneurs have had the opportunity to sponsor a seat and have their name plaque placed on it. There are still a few »Leerstühle« available. Close the gaps!
»Leerstühle« - empty seats - in the Friedrich-Schadeberg-Hörsaal: The time has come: the university is in the city of Siegen. In the new building at the Unteres Schloss campus, students learn with state-of-the-art technical equipment in a barrier-free environment. Three lecture halls offer a total of 998 seats, plus several seminar rooms. On the occasion of the inauguration of the Friedrich Schadeberg lecture hall on 30 October 2020, there are now also "empty chairs" to be filled in this lecture hall. 594 chairs waiting for new owners!
Would you like to support students by sponsoring a seat in the Audimax, Campus Adolf-Reichwein-Str. or in the Friedrich Schadeberg lecture hall, Campus Unteres Schloss?
Please contact us for further information. We take care of your "empty chair" and provide it with a plaque bearing your or your company's name - according to your wish - thus referring to your support.
