Create and accompany educational pathways
The Claussen-Simon-Stiftung supports talented young people at every stage of their development: at school, at university and in their profession. Under the three categories School & Education, University & Academia and Arts & Culture, we offer scholarship programmes and project funding to pupils, students, doctoral candidates and emerging academics, along with artists, musicians and creatives.
Supporting talented and committed young people is at the core of our work as a foundation. In addition, every year we invite teachers and professors from Hamburg schools and tertiary institutions, along with their pupils and students, to develop innovative project ideas and apply for funding as part of the 'Unseren Schulen' and 'Unseren Hochschulen' competitions.
Non-material or 'wholistic' support is a fundamental aspect of our work. We offer our scholars a comprehensive and tailored programme of seminars, lecture events and coaching sessions. We create numerous opportunities for exchange, dialogue and shared experiences, bring scholars and alumni together at regional chapter meetings and provide a cross-disciplinary curriculum.
