In addition to receiving the Deutschlandstipendium, the scholarship holders can look forward to an attractive accompanying program throughout their scholarship period.
The scholarship year begins with a ceremonial awarding of certificates to the new scholarship holders, to which all scholarship donors are also invited. Here, all sponsored students have the opportunity to get to know the other scholarship holders and those who have made a commitment to you.
At the kick-off workshop, all scholarship recipients come together for one day. Accompanied by a moderator, the role as a scholarship holder is examined, the opportunities and possibilities associated with the scholarship are discussed, and open questions are answered. In smaller groups, the participants discuss what is expected of the accompanying program and how the sponsored students themselves can contribute to its implementation.
In the middle of the funding year, the "Bergfest" takes place. This event is planned and carried out independently by the scholarship holders as a thank-you for the sponsors. The focus is on networking between sponsors and scholarship recipients and individual exchange.
In addition, the scholarship holders organize a regular get-together in order to promote a relaxed exchange between the students and the sponsors.
Among the scholarship sponsors are companies, private individuals and foundations. Many of them regularly offer exclusive events as part of the idealistic accompanying program, such as lectures, workshops, company visits, corporate events and much more.
In addition, the Deutschlandstipendium holders are invited to official events at the University of Bremen, such as the Rector's Yearbook Reception.
On a supra-regional level, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Stifterverband invite the scholarship holders to networking events.
