|28 young talents awarded with a Deutschlandstipendium|
Hof University has now awarded the Deutschlandstipendium ("Germany scholarship") for the tenth time at a ceremony in the Freiheitshalle in Hof. A total of 28 new scholarship holders were selected for the grant period 2021/22 and received their certificates from Prof. Dr. Dietmar Wolff, Vice President Teaching at Hof University. The young students will all receive a grant of 3.600 EUR for at least one year. The funding is usually shared between private companies, foundations and the federal government.
The Deutschlandstipendium has been in existence since 2011 and is a nationwide scholarship program for talented students at state and state-recognized universities. Hof University has been a program partner from the very beginning and has already been able to raise around one million EUR in funding for young talents through the scholarship.
In addition to companies, associations, foundations and private individuals can also act as sponsors. Some supporters are particularly committed: The Wilo Foundation, for example, provides the private share for ten scholarships each year, while the companies Netzsch and ThügaSmartmetering GmbH do the same for three talents each year. A total of eight sponsors of the Deutschlandstipendium were present at the award ceremony in the Freiheitshalle.
At Hof University, the following sponsors, among others, currently support the Deutschlandstipendium:
Wilo Foundation, Erich Netzsch Holding GmbH & C0.KG, ThügaSmartmetering GmbH, KSB Foundation, Dennree GmbH, F&P GmbH, GAMMA GmbH, TÜV Süd, BD Sensors GmbH, Hoftex Group AG;
