“Encouraging and Promoting Young People”
RWTH Training Fund / BMBF Scholarship: C&F is supporting six students at the RWTH Aachen
Düsseldorf, February 5, 2018 – Cohausz & Florack (C&F) is supporting young people in their vocational and personal development – for example through the RWTH Training Fund (“RWTH-Bildungsfonds”) within the framework of the “Deutschlandstipendium” scholarship program by the Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). And the firm is again actively taking part in the program in 2018. For the first time since its conception, six (instead of four, as was the case in the past seven years) scholars of the RWTH Aachen are being supported by the firm: Students from the fields of Mechanical Engineering; Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Engineering; Physics and Chemistry.
The ceremonial presentation of the certificates at the beginning of the scholarship took place in the coronation hall of Aachen town hall at the beginning of December 2017. Before that, at an informal get-together at the Aachen Christmas market, the scholars were already given the opportunity to get to know some of the Partners of Cohausz & Florack. “Young people who are interested and committed should be encouraged and promoted on their journey,” says Andreas Thielmann, Patent Attorney and Partner at C&F. “We are pleased that by taking part in the Deutschlandstipendium this year too, we can again make a valuable contribution to the cause.”
Since 2011 the Deutschlandstipendium by the BMBF enables high-performing and engaged students to partake in higher education – irrespective of their social background. For this purpose, they are supported with EUR 300 per month regardless of their income. Half is shouldered by private sponsors such as companies, foundations or private persons, the other half is incurred by the federal government. It this way it was thus possible to support a total of 25,528 scholarship holders in the year 2016.
