The award ceremony began with the granting of 41 scholarships of the Deutschlandstipendium, which are enabled by companies, foundations, friends and alumni of Frankfurt School. The Deutschlandstipendium, which was founded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in 2011, runs for a year. One half of the scholarship that is worth 7.200 Euro in total is provided by the federal government. The other half is sponsored by a supporter. In addition, to the personal achievment of the applicants in their studies an essay competition had to be accomplished succesfully.
