A project meeting with the 2016/2017 scholarship recipients took place at Hamburg Süd. KLU Deutschland Scholarship holders Tobias Braun and Alexander Kurmis presented their grades to sponsor Hamburg Süd and shared their future career plans. Jan Martens (Senior Manager Human Resources Management Hamburg Süd), Professor Christian Barrot (Associate Professor of Marketing and Innovation & Dean of Programs KLU) and Stefan Zahn (Project and Research Management KLU) also attended the meeting.
KLU students Mulan Bartz, Sandria Weißhuhn and Felix Anton Sklenarz were awarded the Deutschlandstipendium (Germany Scholarship) this year. A total of 14 KLU students applied for the financial support, which will be paid out to the candidates for a period of one year starting September 1, 2017. The three winners impressed the jury with the high quality of their academic achievements and special extra-curricular commitment.
“The consistently high level of applications presented us with a difficult choice in the selection committee. I congratulate the winners very warmly," says Thomas Strothotte, President of KLU.
The Deutschlandstipendium is a programme of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to support young talents. All in all, each scholar receives 300 euros per month. Half of the award is funded by the Ministry. KLU won over the globally active logistics company Hamburg Süd to fund the second half of the scholarship.
