The Deutsche Bank Sports Scholarship creates room for development
Deutsche Bank is committed to Germany’s top athletes. With the Deutsche Bank Sports Scholarship, the bank exclusively supports up to 400 collegiate athletes with 400 euros a month in financial aid, which serves as an important basis for their academic studies and career opportunities.
German athletes inspire the world with their athletic achievements – at the Olympic Games, the Paralympics and world and European championship events. Athletic success is a question not only of talent but also of hard work: Training sessions and competitions need to be balanced with vocational or academic studies.
Through the Deutsche Bank Sports Scholarship in cooperation with Stiftung Deutsche Sporthilfe, athletes receive essential financial aid for their academic studies. In this way, Deutsche supports aspiring and top collegiate athletes, including numerous Olympic medal holders and world and European champions.
