Programme Description

The German University Foundation DUS has started the Medicus scholarship programme for medical students in Germany in 2018. The programme is geared to candidates from non–academic backgrounds, the ‘first-generation students’, as well as refugees. The DUS offers applicants one-on-one mentorship by locally based university teachers in the candidates’ respective subject areas. The programme furthermore includes a number of non-material services such as workshops or a book allowance of EUR 600 to help pave the scholars’ way to academic success and make for easier access to the German labour market.

Scholarship Value

  • placement with a locally based university teacher of the candidate’s subject area as a mentor
  • obligatory biannual seminars aimed at developing core skills in the following fields: mentoring as a chance and a mission, self- and learning management skills, how to create presentations and present oneself, job application training, business etiquette and communication, intercultural competence
  • additional seminars on an optional basis
  • participation in academic events (i.e. the symposium by the German Association of University Professors and Lecturers, DHV) as well as involvement in relevant networks
  • compensation for travel expenses to seminars and other trips in connection with the Medicus programme
  • scholars are entitled to a book allowance of EUR 600 per year unless they hold a full scholarship by another institution
