The number of Germany scholarship holders at the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences has reached a new high. 83 students from the eight faculties will be supported in this funding year and will receive EUR 300 per month. At the scholarship ceremony in the Westphalian Industry Club, students and donors met each other again in person.
With the Deutschlandstipendium, private sponsors and companies recruited by the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences donate half of the financial support, the other half comes from state funding from the federal government. Outstanding achievements in their studies are one of the criteria according to which the scholarship holders are selected. However, a special educational biography or social commitment can also qualify for funding. The funding lasts for a year.
One of the new donors at the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences is a company from Munich that has dedicated its scholarship to a deceased employee. “He had studied computer science at our university of applied sciences from 1980 to 1983 and repeatedly mentioned us with praise,” reports Rector Wilhelm Schwick when the certificate was handed over at the beginning of November. In addition to company representatives, relatives of the deceased also came to Dortmund for the scholarship ceremony.
