Scholarships for B.A. Translation students

for the Academic Year 2017/2018

The Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences has been granting scholarships annually since 2007 for the most meritorious B.A. Translation students out of funds provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The scholarships are granted per year but usually extended for the whole course of the program if the performance of the scholarship holders stays consistently above average. Students can apply for the following types of scholarships.

Sur-place Scholarships are primarily granted to Jordanian nationals and comprise

  • a lump sum that covers (approximately) the study fees at the GJU

  • a monthly allowance to cover the costs of living during the year in Germany

  • a travel allowance for the trip to Germany

Third Country Scholarships are exclusively granted to Non-Jordanian nationals and comprise

  • a lump sum that covers (approximately) the study fees at the GJU

  • a monthly allowance to cover the costs of living for the stay in Jordan

  • a monthly allowance to cover the costs of living for the year in Germany

  • a travel allowance for the trip to Germany
