CAU awards Germany scholarships
Kiel, 28 October 2015:
CAU president Prof. Lutz Kipp and vice-president Prof. Ilka Parchmann announced the winners of the 2015/16 Germany Scholarships (Deutschlandstipendium) at Christian-Albrechts-University in a festive ceremony at the Science Center. This year marks the third in which we contributed with funding for a one-year stipend, open to all academic disciplines in the tradition of CAU as "universitas".

"Affording their studies has become very difficult for many students in recent years, as little if any time remains since the conversion to the Bachelor/Master system for financing their living expenses by working besides their studies during the semester or in the semester breaks. A Germany Scholarship is not only a help, but also a special recognition and motivation. We are extraordinarily glad to be able to support and honor our best, most committed and engaged young talent at CAU in this way."
The Germany Scholarship provides financial and non-material support to high-achieving and committed students at German universities from all over the world. Businesses, foundations and private individuals sponsor young talent with a pledge of 50 % of the cost of a stipend per year. The Federal Government matches each donation with the other 50 %.
