Your scholarship year – more than just money!
Deutschlandstipendium (DLS) provides you with additional 300 euros every month for a whole year. Congratulations! What now? DLS can be much more than just a transaction in your bank account. Take the matter in your own hands and make out of your DLS year a real success. How exactly? This is what you would learn from your fellow scholarship holders.
Many scholarship holders still underestimate the opportunities offered by the DLS and misjudge their role as „ambassadors“. However, DLS can be much more than just a transaction in a bank account. It can open doors, create networks and initiate exchange with your fellow scholarship holders.
There are many ideas for this already. They come from a workshop called “More than just money – make the best out of the Deutschlandstipedium” with more than 150 scholarship holders. They met at the beginning of 2016 to discuss and formulate their ideas for a successful DLS year.
1. Get in touch with your sponsor at the scholarship holder party
Each January, we host our scholarship holder party, so that you can chat with your sponsors. Thus, valuable contacts have already been established in the previous years.
This funding year, the scholarship holder party took place on 24th January 2018. Here are some impressions from our beautiful party.
2. Network with each other
Get in touch with your fellow scholarship holders. And with alumni as well!
