At this year’s festive event of the TUM Deutschlandstipendium, we again set up the traditional donation chest for the collective scholarships under our proven motto “Giving something back together”. Together with the donations from the kick-off event in December, more than 900€ were collected – the equivalent of half a scholarship!!! We thank everyone for their participation!
80 euros in donations through this year’s “Spendentruhe”
During the official welcome event of this academic year’s Deutschlandstipendium, we collected 80 euros in donations through the “Spendentruhe”. Sadly, Paypal no longer offers money pools. We think that the lack of visibility of the current state of the donation campaign is the reason for the decline in the success of our “Spendentruhe”.
Our association now on Amazon Smile

First Online Welcome Event
On October 19, our first welcome meeting took place. Thank you for the great conversations, Selin, Cara, Samiksha, Tom and Yordan. We had the opportunity to get to know each other in 1-1 breakout rooms and will continue to hold this event in the coming months for new members and anyone else who would like to join.
