- On the occasion of its 10th birthday, Santander universities in Germany are giving away the “Carefree Scholarship” to students
- Santander Germany has invested more than 20 million euros in higher education over the past 10 years, supporting a total of 18,000 people and institutions
Santander Germany is celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Santander Universities division in Germany with the “carefree scholarship”. Santander will draw a grant of 10,000 euros from all applicants at random. This gives the student the opportunity to finance their studies and associated additional costs for two years. “We want the winner to be able to concentrate on their studies without any worries. The 10,000 euros can be used to pay for numerous study-related costs,” says Alberto Dörr, Head of Santander Universities in Germany.
Applications for the Santander “Carefree Scholarship” can be submitted until November 14, 2022 on Santander Scholarships, the education and scholarship platform of the Santander Banking Group. The only requirements for participation in the worry-free scholarship: The students must be enrolled at a German university and have a place of residence in Germany. Subject and grades are irrelevant.
Santander Germany has invested more than 20 million euros in higher education
Santander Universities have been represented in Germany since 2012. Today the bank cooperates with 27 German partner universities and educational institutions. Over the past ten years, more than 430 educational projects have been financed in this way. Santander Germany has supported more than 18,000 beneficiaries – students or company founders – and thus invested a total of more than 20 million euros in educational support.
Santander Universities is a global initiative promoting education and entrepreneurship. For a quarter of a century, Santander has been committed to higher education around the world, promoting and supporting students, graduates and teachers. In addition, there are special scholarships and programs for founders as well as junior staff and executives. “The Santander Banking Group is the world’s largest private sponsor of higher education and has been involved with the Santander Universities area in over 30 countries for more than 25 years. The funding is provided in the areas of education, employability and entrepreneurship,” says Alberto Dörr. This also includes the further training of employees (#neverstoplearning), language training or the support of founders. Santander Universities’ record is impressive: Since 1996, more than 630,000 students, professionals, start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises have been supported worldwide. To this end, the bank provided more than two billion euros and has entered into partnerships with more than 1,000 universities and academic institutions in eleven countries.
