Sponsorship Pays Off!


RWTH Education Fund Launches „Matching Challenge“


Whether you want to get in touch with the best students from Aachen at an early stage and promote excellent young talent or simply want to give something back and make a significant contribution to promoting education at RWTH Aachen University – your sponsorship commitment will be rewarded.


Your support allows students to concentrate on what is most important: their education.

Thanks to the participation of numerous companies, foundations, and private individuals, the RWTH Education Fund is able to support students with a monthly scholarship for at least two semesters. Students receive a monthly scholarship of 300 euros for one academic year as part of the Deutschlandstipendium program. Half of this funding is raised by the University, while the other half is provided by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

To now even top the amount of the resulting scholarship money we collect, we have created the “Matching Challenge!”

What is it all about? The challenge is to reach a donation amount of 18,000 euros. If we can reach this amount, two Matching Partners will add up to 18,000 euros on top. Together with the donations collected from you as scholarship holders and from current and former RWTH members, we will arrive at a total sum of 36,000 euros. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research will then double it, to up to 72,000 euros.

Each and every one of us is called upon to help reach this goal, and every euro counts – together, we will be able to hit the 18,000 euro target and thus make it possible for 20 more students to receive a scholarship!

Would you like to know more about the background, the process, and the Challenge’s goal? Would you like to participate as a sponsor? You can find all the information you need on our website.

Thank you for your contribution to the Matching Challenge!
