Why are scholarships worthwhile?
Scholarships can be helpful even outside of their financial side. Scholarships are useful for:
• Building networks
• Making your job application more attractive for future employers
The scholarship programs can be very diverse; from state programs with their assistance programs through their gifted programs to associations and companies. A good overview can be found in the stipends database of the "Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung".
