The goal of the Education Fund is to improve the study conditions of its scholarship recipients. This not only includes monetary support made possible by numerous donors, but also personal contact among all those involved. With a range of different events, the scholarship program contributes to strengthening the network among scholarship recipients as well as that of donors and recipients.
Every year, a large scholarship award ceremony kicks off the new funding period at Coronation Hall at Aachen City Hall. Initial contact is established here, donors and scholarship recipients can get to know each other, and the certificates are awarded. Before this event, RWTH Aachen University invites donors to "Meet RWTH" – an exclusive event. This gives them the chance to get to know the University, current research fields, and other donors.
During the scholarship year, the students organize regular meetings between themselves via their own network, which are coordinated by the team of spokespersons for scholarship recipients. In addition, some sponsors also offer their own event programs for scholarship holders. From site visits to workshops and evenings indoors by the fireplace, contact can be strengthened here. Furthermore, RWTH Aachen University provides an ideal event program of sport and culture for those who are sponsored in the funding period in question.
