Become a Sponsor!

The Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin awards the Deutschlandstipendium to students of all nationalities and in all subject areas who show exceptional promise by virtue of their outstanding achievements and social commitment. Through a Deutschlandstipendium, you will provide significant material assistance to an outstanding young musical talent, allowing him/her to focus fully on his/her studies.

The Deutschlandstipendium is based on mixed financing: one half of each stipend is financed through private donations, while the other half is covered by the German Federal Republic. Your contribution in the amount of €1800 therefore means a total payment of €3600 for a one-year scholarship. Beginning in winter semester, each student receives €300 monthly for a period of 12 months.

When you decide to sponsor a Deutschlandstipendium, you enjoy the prerogative of earmarking the award, i.e. for a specific artistic subject. We are also grateful for donations in amounts lower than the subsidy amount of €1800: these flow into a sponsorship pool through which contributions are bundled and used to cover additional stipends. Your gift can also be utilized for tax purposes (you will receive a donation receipt toward the end of the year).

As a sponsor, you will be invited to official events such as the Deutschlandstipendium Awards Ceremony, as well as to an exclusive annual concert given by scholarship holders – and will hence enjoy opportunities to become acquainted with stipend holders, instructors, and the School’s president.

You can learn more from our brochure, which is available in the download area. If you decide to sponsor the Deutschlandstipendium with a donation, please fill out the sponsorship form and send it via mail, fax, or e-mail to the scholarship office. We would be happy to assist you at any time with your questions or concerns.
