The Deutsche Bank Sports Scholarship creates room for development

Deutsche Bank has been supporting Deutsche Sporthilfe (German Sports Aid Foundation) for over four decades. The bank has been a partner of the Stiftung Deutsche Sporthilfe since 2001 and one of the five national sponsors since 2008.

A cornerstone of the partnership is the Deutsche Bank Sports Scholarship introduced in 2012. Through the scholarship, which provides essential financial aid for academic studies, the bank helps talented athletes pursue a second profession after their sports career. Among the student athletes are numerous Olympic medal holders and world and European champions.

The bank exclusively sponsors up to 300 student Deutsche Sporthilfe athletes from around 30 sports and all regions of Germany, providing them each with 300 euros a month. After all, sporting success is not only a question of talent, but also of hard work: training, competitions, education, and studies must be combined in the best possible way.
