Reports from scholarship holders and sponsors
"A volunteer who works with young people for six hours a week performs no less outstandingly than someone who spends six hours a week juggling academic texts. Encouraged by the German Scholarship, I will continue to try to shape my academic career and my civil commitment according to this principle: Both must take place."
Julius Held, Sustainable Social Policy
"For HARIBO, supporting young talent has always been a very high priority. That is why we are delighted to have a committed partner in Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences with whom we can support motivated students on their way. In our exchanges with scholarship recipients, it is always great to learn about the opportunities that the German Scholarship opens up for them.
We are regularly on the lookout for students who would like to shape the future together with us and are convinced that the German Scholarship makes a valuable contribution to the promotion of young talent. During the speed dating sessions at the Digital Company Day in January, for example, we again met very interested and talented students who had smart questions for us. This has once again confirmed our commitment to the program."
Alexandra Stumpe, Senior Personnel Officer HR Marketing
"Through the German Scholarship, you receive a high level of recognition for the good performance and ambition that you continuously display during your studies. The German Scholarship certificate is considered a high honor in the industry and gave me an advantage over other applicants during my job search after graduation. The regular meetings with other scholarship holders allow you to expand or build up your network even before you start your professional life. Of course, the financial relief, which made it possible for me to finance my semester abroad, is an immense advantage."
Eva Rübhausen, Economics
"The German Scholarship is more than just a pleasing financial support through its ideal accompanying program at our university. It promotes the exchange between students of the same or other courses of study who find their way to the same table within the framework of the scholarship and enables interesting insights and possibly also future-oriented contacts to the companies of the sponsors.
All these advantages encourage me to continue to perform very well in my field of study and to be part of it during my further studies."
Carolin Becher, Economics
"In addition to the welcome financial support, the Deutschlandstipendium has so far provided me above all with very good contact with industry. My sponsor SIEGWERK Druckfarben has given me the opportunity to gain an insight into working life and also to write my bachelor's thesis there. I was again selected for the Deutschlandstipendium for my master's studies. The award makes me proud, confirms my choice of studies and motivates me to continue doing my best."
Markus Witzler, Analytical Chemistry and Quality Assurance (M.Sc.)
"For me, the scholarship is confirmation that social commitment in our society is worthwhile and proves its worth. It enables me to continue to be socially active, especially through the financial support, and spurs me on to create even more and to get involved beyond that! I think it's great that programs are also offered by the sponsors and the universities to give us, the scholarship holders, the opportunity to continue our education intellectually as well! Through the get-togethers, you also get to meet new people and make more social contacts. It's interesting to see how differently the scholarship can be used: some can use it to finance an internship abroad, others can pursue their interests in their free time, and there are scholarship holders who want to start new projects and don't have the time for a part-time job. I'm glad that the funding supports me in this way - especially when there's more to do for my studies."
Sandra Ahmad, Economics
"In addition to the financial support, which is a support for me in financing my studies, the NRW scholarship means for me in particular a first opportunity to get in contact with companies. This can result in topics for a project or bachelor thesis. During a factory tour of my sponsor Reifenhäuser REICOFIL GmbH & Co. KG, I gained insights into the product range and the fields of work of Reicofil. In addition, being accepted into the scholarship program also gives me additional motivation in my studies."
Malte Kraft, Mechanical Engineering
"The Deutschlandstipendium gives me access to idealistic offers and gives me the chance to concentrate fully on my studies. I have already been in contact with my sponsor Lidl and I enjoy attending the workshops offered. The exchange with other students rounds off the positive overall impression of the Deutschlandstipendium. The complete program motivates me to continue doing my best this year."
Dominik Otto, Economics
"As part of a leading global company with over 100,000 employees, the training and development of young talent is a fundamental part of our corporate philosophy. Therefore, cooperation with schools and universities at the local level is very important to us, Eaton Industries GmbH.
At the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences in particular, we have been involved in university sponsorship for several years and support the promising German Scholarship program.
We are very pleased to be able to award four scholarships again this year. With this commitment, we want to support young, highly motivated and forward-thinking talents and help them get off to a good start in their careers."
Christof Spiegel, Managing Director of Eaton Industries GmbH, Managing Director of the Hein Moeller Foundation
"For me, the German Scholarship means appreciation, future opportunities and security at the same time. It helps me to build up a regional network of companies and students. I also see the financial support as an opportunity to continue to focus on my studies and to do voluntary work. In addition, I am pleased that the subject of business psychology is becoming better known among potential employers, not least through the German Scholarship."
