The three young professionals are taking courses in the fields of mechanical and electrical engineering.

“It is important to us to support future talents early on,” explains Werner Deggim, CEO of NORMA Group. “As a technology leader, we continuously invest in our own innovative strength and want young people to be able to share in our broad expertise. For this reason, our commitment to these German scholarships extends well beyond merely providing financial support.”
With the Deutschlandstipendium, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research has been supporting students and university entrants whose career paths indicate outstanding achievements in studies and at work since 2011. The federal government and private donors are each providing 300 euros per month for a scholarship recipient.
