Opportunities to connect and broaden perspectives

Idealistic or Non-material Support

As a foundation that has set itself the task of promoting talented young individuals, active and lasting exchange among scholars is very important to us. Our scholarship holders enrich the work of the foundation with their different experiences, goals and competencies, and we want to create environments and opportunities to share these as a  community and open up new perspectives.

We want to help build personalities and create pathways. This is why, in addition to financial support, idealistic or non-material support is a key element of our foundation's work. We provide our scholarship holders with opportunities for cross-programme and interdisciplinary exchange and training. Our non-material support includes seminars, workshops, lectures and networking events.

We also organise meetings within our various funding programmes to share experiences, reflect and enter into dialogue with the other members of the programme.

We offer our scholarship holders a programme of workshops to support and enrich their academic and personal development. The seminars are open to all scholarship holders and, in addition to ongoing interdisciplinary training, offer an opportunity to get to know scholars from other programmes and to broaden perspectives.

Upcoming events are listed in our calendar. For example, workshops on voice and presentation training, rhetoric and academic writing are planned. Do you have a specific workshop request? Let us know and we'll be happy to take on your suggestion.
