Sponsor a scholarship

We invite you to sponsor exceptional students with a monthly allowance of EUR 150 over the course of at least one year and join a personal exchange. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research grants the same amount on top of that. Hand over the scholarship certificate in person during our annual ceremony and network with representatives from the school and other sponsors. Increase your brand awareness by appearing as a sponsor in the HHL news magazine and on posters. On top of everything, you will obtain the sponsor’s signet from the federal government which you may use on your company’s website.

As the CEO of a start-up company in the growth phase, I observe daily how important it is to find and develop young talent for your staff. The National Scholarship for HHL students is a great opportunity for companies to get involved as a company in educating and promoting talent and supporting excellent personalities.
