What Our Scholars Have To Say
Master Plus


Here's what some of our active Master Plus scholars and alumni have to say: 

»Thanks to the Claussen-Simon-Stiftung's generous financial support my scholarship enables me to focus entirely on my master's degree. I also benefit in others ways from the numerous training opportunites on offer at the Stiftung. In addition to the valuable professional input, the interdisciplinary networking with other scholarship holders gives me an exciting insight into their different subject areas. The Stiftung's young and dynamic mentality and their personal approach make me feel very at home there.«

Amelie Bräumer
Culture und Music Management, HfMT München

»I have no words to thank the Claussen-Simon-Stiftung for granting me the opportunity to be here and to live this experience, that help me become a better professional and a better human being. Furthermore, it is a matter of pride to be a scholar of this foundation that only selects the best students with the best personal qualities. I know this opportunity is going to divide my life in two in each area of my life.«

María Merino Vera
Law & Business, Bucerius Law School Hamburg

»My scholarship from the Claussen-Simon-Stiftung enabled me to put my plan of a double master's degree into practice. The scholarship offers much more than financial support; workshops and training courses such as 'Career or Vocation?' create a framework in which one can confront one's personal development and the shaping of one's own future. During this time, the exchange with other scholars from a wide variety of disciplines provides new inspiration and food for thought. The team at the Claussen-Simon-Stiftung maintains personal contact with us scholarship holders and assists us with various academic and personal challenges during our studies.«

Malik Voß
Ship Building + Technology Management, Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg und NIT

»My first master’s semester and the associated funding by the Claussen-Simon-Foundation have been special for many reasons. The funding and support enhanced my feeling of self-efficacy for my personal, academic, and professional path. I perceive the great workshops together with inspiring encounters and conversations with people tied to the foundation as very rewarding!«

Zami Khalil, Studierender der Klinischen Psychologie und Psychotherapie

»When I finish my studies, I will look back fondly and above all with a great deal of gratitude towards the Claussen-Simon-Stiftung. The fact that I was able to study in this way, carefree and focused is due to the wonderful support of this foundation, and I feel more than honoured to have been a scholarship holder here.«

Laura Schäfer
Sustainability, Leuphana Universität

»I am very satisfied with the beautiful city of Hamburg and life at TUHH campus. Last but not least, I am most grateful for the support from Claussen-Simon-Stiftung without which scholarship I wouldn’t be able to realize my dream of studying here. I am looking forward to starting a new semester and to all new challenges and opportunities that I will find.«
