Presentation of scholarship certificates 2017/18

On April 24th, 2018, 11 graduates of Bachelor's programmes with a MINT orientation received their scholarship certificates from the Thomas Weiland-Foundation. They had previously been able to assert themselves against numerous applicants and are now supported by the foundation in their Master's degree courses at the Technical University of Darmstadt. This creates financial freedom for students, which can be used to spend semesters abroad or take internships as part of their studies.

After a photo session in the foyer of karo 5 the ceremony took place in the Senate Hall of the Presidium. In addition to the President of the University, Prof. Dr. Hans Jürgen Prömel (Vice-Chairman of the Advisory Council), the Foundation Donor Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Weiland (Chairman of the Advisory Council) also appeared to personally honour and congratulate the scholarship holders. A dinner together formed the successful conclusion of the event.
