Within the framework of the Klaus Murmann Fellowship Programme, SDW offers scholarships to approximately 1000 students and doctoral candidates from all subject areas. They receive financial support in the form of scholarships and additional funds for study years or internships in foreign countries. Parallel to their undergraduate or doctoral studies, the scholarship holders participate additionally in a comprehensive auxiliary programme. While the scholarships are funded by Germany's Federal Ministry for Education and Research, the development programme for high potentials is funded by SDW and other entrepreneurial philanthropists. The goal of SDW is to prepare especially talented and committed young people for future leadership positions in industry and business or other areas of society.

To be admitted into the fellowship programme, undergraduate and PhD students must exhibit certain qualities and fulfil certain requirements: Besides above-average academic achievements, applicants must exhibit initiative and social commitment, e.g. in associations, social institutions or in the field of politics. Applicants should also exhibit social competence, have a well-founded education, be able to work in a team and have good communication skills. The sponsorship of SDW is aimed at open-minded young people with an international orientation who consciously seek an exchange with other cultures. The scholarship winners are selected twice a year in a two-stage selection process, the second stage of which is an assessment centre.

deadline for applications is: February 15th, August 15th
