"With the help of the scholarship I can complete my final semester including the preparation for my state exam without the additional burden of a part-time job. This is an immense relief for me, because I get less stressed and can prevent a relapse. In addition, it honors me and gives me great pleasure, because it represents for me a recognition of my achievements to date. In addition, I am motivated to continue striving for my big dream: becoming a therapist for children and adolescents after graduation."


"With the help of the scholarship I would like to further my education to become an algae biotechnologist. This will enable me to work in the exciting field of algae biotechnology. The scholarship enables me to work on a project at the Humboldt University in Berlin, where I can learn biotechnological methods such as reactor design, process technology and control, which were not part of my education until now."


"In addition to conceptualizing and curating interdisciplinary research projects and museum art exhibitions, I study literature, philosophy, and aesthetics at the European University Viadrina. I am fortunate to be able to spend a semester abroad in Lisbon in preparation for my master's thesis focusing on the transcultural culture and art industry. The scholarship is enriching for me in many ways: it allows me to study abroad, learn a new language and build new professional networks."


"Currently I am studying TUM-BWL (70% business administration, 30% mechanical engineering) at the TU Munich. I will use the scholarship to finance a semester abroad at the Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM). This has an excellent reputation and is another milestone to reach my goal – management consulting. Studying at GEM not only helps me professionally, but also personally. The scholarship enables me to concentrate fully on my studies."


"The scholarship enables me to fulfill my big dream of studying in the UK. I am very grateful to be able to pursue my passion for languages more fully after completing my teaching degree, in addition to the joy of teaching. So I am very happy to be able to expand my knowledge with my second degree in linguistics. It offers me the opportunity to apply my skills in a practice-oriented way and to learn new contents."
