Call for Applications: Scholarships for B.A. Translation Studentsfor the Academic Year 2019/2020 

The Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences is granting scholarships annually 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 are usually extended for the whole course of the program if the performance of the scholarship holders stays consistently above average.

Students from Jordan and neighbouring countries can apply for Surplace-Scholarships.  Next call for applications will presumably be in July 2019 for the academic year 2019/2020.

The scholarships comprise of

  • a lump sum that covers the study fees or part of the study fees at the GJU
  • a monthly allowance that approximately covers the costs of living during the year in Germany
  • a travel allowance for the trip to Germany

Pre-Requisites and Application Requirements

In general, students who apply for studying in the B.A. Translation Program can also apply for a scholarship (minimum school GPA 70%). Applicants should hand in the following documents in one PDF file only via email:

  • Application Form here
  • CV
  • Copy of passport
  • Certified Copy of Secondary School Certificate (Tawjihi or equivalent)
  • Letter of Motivation in English

The best applicants will be chosen for a scholarship based on the school GPA, the motivation letter, an interview and an English/Arabic proficiency test.

Please note

There is no specific age limit though precedence is usually given to fresh school graduates.

You can apply if you already hold a degree, but preference is again usually given to fresh school graduates.

If you are not a Jordanian national and/or not residing in Jordan, you can apply for the scholarship, but it is maybe not appropriate for you as it does not cover all costs of study and living. In the first year the scholarship approximately covers the study fees of Jordanian nationals (study fees for international students generally are higher). For the second and third year it will be reduced to about half the amount (for internal reasons of the scholarship provider). For the time in Germany (4th year) it approximately covers the costs of living as well as travel expenses (there are practically no study fees in Germany).
