Why donate?

Private donors only finance half of the scholarship. The other half is funded via the Germany Scholarship from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. This means: for every 1,800 euros, with which you support us, we receive an additional 1,800 euros from the country.


Using these means we fund a student for one year with a total of 3,600 euros at 300 euros a month. Additionally, an ideal framework program, which is also offered to scholarship recipients, provides the possibility for an active exchange between all donors and recipients.

Are you interested in getting to know and funding this young talent and these up and coming leaders? Then get involved with the Education Fund!


What Our Donors Say

"The Germany Scholarship contributes to securing the competitiveness of our country. It helps students to gain important insights into everyday professional life, and the close contact with the donor company give them ideas about their own career paths. At our company, we have student mentors from Bosch’s research divisions who advise student on questions such as personal strengths, choosing specializations, suitable internship positions, or career planning. And RWTH Aachen provides an additional framework program including the annual scholarship award ceremony in Aachen City Hall.Rathaus."

DSA is one of the worldwide leaders in communications solutions for electric and electronic vehicle components. In order to remain a technology leader, we must continually recruit highly educated young talents, individuals who want to think their way into the complex world of vehicle diagnostics and the interplay between software and hardware, and who might already have ideas for future solutions. We consider the Education Fund an opportunity to get in touch with determined and motivated students. Furthermore, we benefit from the Education Fund in that it has helped to increase the company’s visibility among students.

We need creative minds if we want to create added value for society today and in the future. For this reason, we consider it very important actively to support young researchers, develop their talents, and to support them in becoming the discoverers of tomorrow. By contributing to the RWTH Education Fund, Clarion is able to make contacts with young talents early on.

The Education Fund and the Germany Scholarship does not only give us the chance to get to know and possibly even recruit outstanding students, it also makes it possible for us to make things easier for students by supporting them with a small financial contribution. This allows them to focus more on their studies and achieve better results.

We support students at RWTH Aachen, as it is an important societal responsibility to promote young talent, and today’s students are the leaders of tomorrow. Aside from financial support, the program offers non-monetary support that makes it possible for students to gain insights into exciting career options. The Germany Scholarship brings scholarship recipients and donors together in a unique way.

During my time at RWTH Aachen I met many people who pushed me to work hard, but who also supported me, both as a student and as a doctoral candidate. Today, I feel the need to give something back to thers.

„Wir sind begeistert von dem Konzept „Deutschlandstipendium“, denn dadurch entsteht eine klassische Win-Win-Situation: Einerseits haben die Stipendiaten mehr Zeit sich intensiver auf ihr Studium zu konzentrieren, andererseits erhalten die fördernden Unternehmen Einblicke in die neusten Entwicklungen der für sie interessanten Fachbereiche und ggf. auch Kontakt zu potenziell zukünftigen Mitarbeitern. Als expandierende, weltweit tätige Unternehmensberatung am Standort Aachen mit dem Schwerpunkt in der Optimierung des Supply Chain Managements in der Metallindustrie fördern wir junge Talente, die betriebswirtschaftliches Denken mit technischem Know-how verbinden. Daher auch unsere Entscheidung, mit dem Stipendium die interdisziplinäre Ausbildung durch die Fachrichtung Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen zu unterstützen. Zusätzlich fühlen wir uns ohnehin mit der RWTH verbunden, da sowohl der Firmengründer als auch viele unserer Mitarbeiter RWTH-Alumni sind.“

Marc Hartmann, Geschäftsführer Bronk & Company
