Giving opportunities 

Looking ahead towards Kühne Logistics University’s first milestone birthday in the Fall of 2020, we have some major new plans:

Firstly, to kick off the new academic year in September 2020, we want to award ten Deutschlandstipendium (Germany Scholarships). In doing so we will be able to offer financial aid to an even larger number of talented, hard-working, and socially engaged students.

In order to meet this goal, we intend to collect a total of 18,000€ in donations from both private individuals and companies. That amount will then be doubled by the federal government.

We kindly ask you to consider a donation. This support will go to a selected group of young people during their studies at KLU.

MINIMUM EFFORT, MAXIMUM IMPACT – FAQ for Donors:

In recent years, the Deutschlandstipendium has become a major scholarship fund for students at several institutions of higher education in Germany.

At KLU our plan is to dramatically increase our funding to students by jumping at this one-time opportunity. Since 2016 we have been able to support three KLU students yearly thanks to the initiative of our committed donors. In celebration of our university’s 10th birthday in 2020, we are increasing this number to ten.

The Deutschlandstipendium operates on a public-private partnership (PPP) funding model. The maximum amount per scholarship and academic year comes to a total of 3,600€ -- 1,800€ from private and 1,800€ from public funding.

Your support goes to students who demonstrate both academic excellence as well as a high level of social engagement.

The Deutschlandstipendium helps students in need of financial assistance in order to better cope with the high costs of living in Hamburg. It has been our experience that especially international students benefit from this support. There have also been cases where the scholarship has aided in purchasing expensive academic literature, participating in summer schools, or attending conferences.

With the combined support of your donation and that of the federal government, recipients are in a much better position to achieve their academic goals.

I was really pleased with the German scholarship, because it not only honours my studies, but also my social commitment.

One unique facet of this scholarship is that recipients of the Deutschlandstipendium benefit from a new flow of extramural contacts provided by their supporters. They gain access to a variety of career networks in economics, science, and society in Germany which may have otherwise been unattainable to them.

Yes, this is possible. This would mean that one 1,800€ scholarship would consist of contributions from several separate donors.

Whether it’s 50, 100 or 500€, we are extremely grateful for each euro we receive and ensure that all incoming donations will be awarded solely and directly to the recipients.

Each euro donated will be doubled by the federal government.
