The recipients are awarded with 300 euros per month. The scholarship does not count toward BAföG and does not need to be repaid. The programme is financed by regional companies, institutions, foundations as well as private individuals and the Federal Ministry for Education and Research with equal shares.  

Additional to the financial support, the scholarship holders are also accompanied by the regional sponsors.
