"The German National Scholarship gives MAN the opportunity to take responsibility for the education of particularly motivated students and to open up new perspectives for them. Through financial support, we enable young talents to carry out their studies in a more targeted manner and offer them the opportunity to get to know our company and make contacts in the industry at an early stage"

Maria Thon, CEO BayWa-Foundation

"With the German National Scholarship, the BayWa Foundation, together with the German government, supports tomorrow's top executives. We are thus investing in one of Germany's most important resources for the future: in highly qualified and high-performing specialists and managers. Particularly important to us are the students of the TU Munich in the fields of agriculture and renewable energies."

Dr. Otto Majewski, Member of the Board of Trustees of TUM

"I am convinced by the concept of the German National Scholarship because it creates the basis for a broad-based donation culture with the involvement of private funds. In the interest of the talented and high-performing students of our TU Munich, I wish the programme lasting success with many private supporters."

enable young people to concentrate fully on their studies. Especially for gifted students from low-income families, this can be decisive. Alumni and friends of the university can give something back from the support they have experienced themselves. In a civil society, they are particularly concerned about the well-being of the next generation.
