Edmund Siemers Foundation
Why does the Edmund Siemers Foundation support the Germany Scholarship program at Universität Hamburg?
,,As a science funding foundation with particularly close ties to Universität Hamburg (Edmund Siemers is the benefactor of the University’s first lecture building), supporting its students is important to us. Supporting particularly talented students at Universität Hamburg reinforces a performance mentality and industry’s interest in the talented young people educated here.
The scholarship also makes it possible for the more exotic, less economically relevant disciplines for which funding is rarely available to provide merit scholarships and raise their public profile. Universität Hamburg offers a range of linguistic and cultural degree programs unparalleled in Germany. Foundations in particular are invited to support outstanding areas of research being conducted university wide or in the individual faculties by sponsoring a Deutschlandstipendium."
Dr. Andreas Graf Wass von Czege, Member of the Board of Directors
