For many years now, the Wilo-Foundation has been a leading provider of Germany Scholarships, awarding over 90 scholarships every year at TU Dortmund University, Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Ruhr University Bochum and Hof University of Applied Sciences.
The scholarships are aimed at committed and deserving students, mainly from engineering but also from other disciplines such as architecture or spatial planning, and are designed to help them uncover their true potential right from the start of their university studies. In addition to providing financial support, the Wilo-Foundation gives scholarship holders the chance to take part in special professional events. It also provides opportunities for them to get to know their university location as a place of culture by letting them participate in the Foundation’s cultural funding activities and inviting them to the opera, to concerts or to exhibitions, including backstage tours and artists talks, for instance at the Dortmund Theatre, the Dortmund Concert Hall or the Freiheitshalle (“Freedom Hall”) of the Hof Symphony Orchestra.
Our aim is to contribute to the development of young talent in the engineering disciplines and at the academic centres providing their university education.
Ever since 2011, the German Ministry of Education and Research has been supporting students who have shown the potential to deliver outstanding performance in their studies and careers by providing them with 300 euros per month under the Germany Scholarship programme. The scholarship is funded 50/50 by the German government and private benefactors. The funding partners are TU Dortmund University, Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Ruhr University Bochum and Hof University of Applied Sciences.
