The German National Scholarship program creates opportunities

In today’s knowledge-based society, education is a key resource. It secures the future of individuals and society at large. Access to programs to acquire skills and receive training must be open to all talented people regardless of their gender, social background and parents’ education.

The Roland Berger Foundation‘s German National Scholarship program, which Deutsche Bank enables nationwide, makes a contribution to supporting equality of opportunity and achievement.

Nationwide more than 500 talented and motivated children and young people, aged 7 to 18, participate in the program. Each student scholar receives an individual support program that offers guidance in 10 learning areas and is updated annually. The various components of the program include seminars on business, politics, culture and science as well as summer academies, professional support and study trips. Volunteer mentors accompany the young people as they pursue a university degree. Some of the mentors are Deutschbankers who support the German National Scholarship in their own personal way.

The individual support for the student scholars, the diverse range of seminars and the early approach of the program beginning in elementary schools distinguish the scholarship program. The children and young people receive an education and the opportunity to achieve their full potential – regardless of their social background.

“The German National Scholarship program has broadened my horizon. Whether it's the seminars, the summer academies, the many encounters with other scholars or the guidance from my mentor, I'm in good hands here!”
