We are convinced that the individual promotion of individual talents has a positive long-term effect on our entire society. This effect is particularly enhanced when the recipients are networked with each other and with society as a whole. Thus, we want to expand the TUM Deutschlandstipendium network and the exchange between all participants beyond the funding periods. To this end, we founded the TUM Deutschlandstipendium Aktive, Alumni- & Förderverein e.V. in 2019, which represents the connection between active and former scholarship holders as well as the sponsors of the TUM Deutschlandstipendium.
Our project can be divided into three active areas:
Networking of active scholarship holders and alumni
- Contact Alumni & Recruit New Members
- Networking events
- Establishment of an “alumni database” for career questions
Individual support for active scholarship holders
- Buddy Program:
Support of the scholarship holders by alumni
- Regular workshops on extracurricular topics
Enable support for as many students as possible
- Enabling collective scholarships through our funding models
In 2022, we want to firmly establish two monthly networking events and regularly offer workshops on various topics, such as personal development or career issues for the association network. In addition, we are striving to enable at least ten TUM students to receive support from the association’s own resources, e.g. through collective scholarships. The recipients will then be intensively supervised and accompanied by alumni through our buddy program.
We are highly motivated to hit the ground running and look forward to new ideas, suggestions and engagement from new members. There is a lot to do, let’s tap the full potential of each individual talent and shape our future together.
