Talent im Land - Grants for Gifted High School Students in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria (German language)

Why are we running this project?

In Germany, the educational success of young people is still too often depend-ent 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.

What are our goals?

"Talent im Land" helps gifted, educationally ambitious, devoted and socially involved 7th- to 12th-graders to work towards their school-leaving examination (Abitur). Both “Talent im Land Baden Württemberg” and “Talent im Land Bayern” enables 50 students annually to pursue their education successfully. The students receive a monthly stipend, personal advice, and access to a comprehensive range of educational offers (meetings, seminars, summer schools, etc.). Students are selected for the program based on their academic potential, dedication to academic and/or extracurricular activities, and their family’s socio-economic background.
