Is there anything substantial that sponsors can do?
Sponsors who are interested can contact Bremen University of Applied Sciences directly (see heading "Contact Person"). They make it possible that the scholarship holders will be endowed with 150 euros per month.
A scholarship can be composed of funds originating from several sponsors. Sponsors may also create additional support opportunities, for example, practical training, further education or information events. The funds provided by the sponsors can be deducted from their respective income pursuant to Article 10b Paragraph 1 of the Internal Revenue Code as expenditures for tax-privileged purposes.
Do sponsors have a say in the matter?
Sponsors have a say when it comes to the question of how the funds are supposed to be used.
They can apply their support deliberately to a specific branch of study or a study course of their preferred choice. Two-thirds of all scholarships which the university approves of within one year may be bound to such a purpose. The remaining scholarships must be granted without a binding purpose. The selection committee decides which of the scholarship candidates are to be selected.
Please support in alliance with the Federal Government talented and proficient students registered at Bremen University of Applied Sciences– strengthen your regional networks and assume responsibility for education and a new generation of skilled employees!
