The Deutsche Hochschulstiftung promotes young people’s access to academic education and training.
The Deutsche Hochschulstiftung is committed to improving access to higher education.
The Deutsche Hochschulstiftung promotes specifically selected European universities and teaching institutions.
The Deutsche Hochschulstiftung is a non-profit foundation for promoting education, schooling, research and science. It was founded in 2005 in Hamburg as a public foundation and works nationally, supporting:
Access to higher education is a deciding factor. Academic doctrine presupposes that secondary school graduates will be accepted at a university. However, with the standardised secondary school university qualification, this is growing increasingly difficult, especially in the underrepresented disciplines, where waiting times are also increasing.
The foundation’s projects are dedicated to helping German secondary school graduates and university applicants access higher education and are committed to helping young people get into their chosen field of study at a university in Germany or in another EU member state.
The Deutsche Hochschulstiftung is politically and religiously independent and free from governmental influence. Thanks to donations and the annual yield on the foundation’s assets, the Deutsche Hochschulstiftung has the resources it needs to support education. The foundation does not limit itself to passive support and remains actively engaged by hosting events and programmes. Since 2009, they have partnered with their legal advisor to offer advice to secondary school graduates and their parents about university admissions.
The Deutsche Hochschulstiftung is a member of the Association of German Foundations in Berlin.
The Deutsche Hochschulstiftung finances their projects using income from the foundation’s assets as well as donations.

The Deutsche Hochschulstiftung supports selected universities, colleges, and institutes of higher learning across Europe. They promote broader access to education for German graduates, in particular in underrepresented disciplines. Some of their current projects include:
Another important part of their work is to support post-secondary education among qualified and motivated secondary school graduates and university applicants.
We welcome suggestions for physical or theoretical projects from students and secondary school teachers, as well as from universities, colleges, institutions or professional bodies (such as the Medical Chamber, Bar Association etc.).
