Think tank on "The future of studying"
Our members are the most important part of everything we do. Without them we wouldn’t exist, hear what they have to say so far.
“Thanks to DeGiS I have settled in Germany much easier. Found friends in my city and didn’t have to spend my Friday night at the dorm.”
“Got my internship via a contact at DeGiS very seamlessly. Couldn’t think of any job platform which would make it that straightforward.”
“Not only have I had the chance to meet other internationals in my city, but I also saw a lot more of Germany than I could have imagined when coming here due to DeGiS.”
“Even though I have been to Germany before starting my Erasmus semester here, I have never had the chance to experience it in a way I could with DeGiS.”
With the DeGiS Scholarship we have developed an opportunity to not only enjoy all the exclusive perks of the network, but also be entitled to additional monetary as well as non-material support. With this, we are aiming to enable exceptional students who are engaged in valuable extracurricular activities and want to make a change in society to follow their passion with more freedom and additional supporters. In addition to the typical DeGiS perks, the scholarship is containing but not limited to the following benefits:Selected access to top-notch events in society, politics or business. Monthly funding of €200 over a course of 6 months. Stay tuned for the 2021 application dates.Learn more Learn more
