Supporting young talent within the framework of the Deutschlandstipendium is an important component of the young talent programs and a sustainable investment in the future of the entire Coroplast Group. The economic success and exceptional innovative strength are due not least to highly qualified specialists. While four scholarships were awarded in the winter semester 2021/2022, we are pleased to announce that we will be able to support eight students in the winter semester 2022/2023.
With the Deutschlandstipendium, we keep in touch with dedicated and talented young people. We commit ourselves to the region and strengthen the overall potential of young people for Germany as a business location.
As a regionally rooted and committed company, it is a particular concern of the Coroplast Group to continue its trusting cooperation with regional universities.
"Thanks to our cooperation with the Deutschlandstipendium, numerous working students from various disciplines have already been able to gain practical experience in exciting projects and write their final theses with us," reports Bettina Haufe, Global Head of HR Recruiting & Development of the Coroplast Group.
"In return, we benefit from fresh impulses and the open approach of the prospective professionals, whom we would like to retain in the long term. Since we are strongly promoting digitalization throughout the Coroplast Group, our focus with the Deutschlandstipendium is currently on the bachelor's and master's degree programs in IT."
Support for educational activities also includes, for example, involvement in the "Friends and Alumni of Bergische Universität e.V." association.
For ten years now, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research has been supporting particularly committed students from all disciplines, thus initiating a new form of scholarship culture in Germany. It all began in 2011 with 5,375 scholarships. In 2020, there were already 28,077 young talents who could be supported throughout Germany by the cooperation of the federal government with private sponsors. Over the course of a decade, companies and private individuals have raised around 226 million euros for students at a total of 310 universities. The same amount was contributed by the Federal Ministry.
Because that is the principle of the Deutschlandstipendiums: Each scholarship of 300 euros per month is made up of 50 percent federal and 50 percent private funding. The universities advertise the scholarships publicly, organize the application and selection process, and communicate with the donors. The broad selection criteria include good academic performance, social commitment and the successful overcoming of obstacles in personal life and education.
