MHMK Scholarship for Master's students

With the Scholarship, MHMK, Macromedia University for Media and Communication, seeks to help talented applicants for its Master’s programmes finance their studies, and thus to give them a chance to enter Germany’s leading media university.

The MHMK’s Scholarship is aimed at high-achieving, dedicated students and is awarded directly by the President of MHMK. The object is to support young people personally and academically and to foster the future innovators and leaders in the media industry.

The Scholarship is initially awarded for one academic year; the amount can be between 20% and 50% of the tuition fee. It can be extended annually.

“Our concern is not just to give the students professional qualifications, but also to qualify them with regard to their personal development.” (Professor Jürgen Faust, Vice-President for Academic Affairs and Research)

Evidence of previous education obtained outside Bavaria must be recognized as having equal value.

3. Selection
