Talent im Land

Grants for Gifted High School Students in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria

In Germany, the educational success of young people is still too often dependent on the socioeconomic status of their parents. This means that – especially for young people from disadvantaged families – education is the key to a self-determined and successful future.

"Talent im Land" helps gifted, educationally ambitious, devoted and socially involved 7th- to 12th-graders to work towards their school-leaving examination (Abitur). The students receive a monthly stipend, personal advice, and access to a comprehensive range of educational offers (meetings, university open days, seminars, summer schools, etc.). Depending on their individual needs, they may also receive grants for computer equipment, school trips, and additional tuition in German or a foreign language. Applicants are primarily selected according to their ability and financial needs.
