10 years of "Talents from Practice"

Anniversary for successful scholarship program of the Scheubeck-Jansen Foundation

For ten years now, the Scheubeck-Jansen Foundation (SJS) has been promoting young academics out of conviction with its established scholarship program "Talents from Practice". Specifically, the support is aimed at trainees who, after successfully completing their training in an industrial company, wish to pursue technical studies. In this way, the SJS provides targeted and sustainable support for the academic further education of trainees.

"It is a particular concern of ours to actively promote qualified young talent in Germany as a business and science location," says Richard Scheubeck (CEO of the Scheubeck-Jansen Foundation). "Today in particular, education is more important than ever and opens up excellent opportunities for the professional future."

As part of the regular scholarship holders' meeting, Raphaela Märkl, Maximilian Neißendorfer and Michael Schächinger were welcomed as three new scholarship holders. At the same time, the scholarship ends for Isabelle Paul and Manuel Fischer with their successful bachelor's degree. Both presented their bachelor theses and had valuable advice for their fellow students. They thanked the SJS both for the financial support and for the numerous other opportunities that the scholarship has opened up. For the two "old scholarship holders", they will now continue with the master's program. A total of 16 young professionals are currently being supported financially and with a great deal of personal commitment on the part of the foundation in their professional development.

Other important aspects of the scholarship are personal development and fellowship within the group, as Susanne Scheubeck (CEO of the Scheubeck-Jansen Foundation) emphasizes: "The financial support brings certain freedoms for a stronger focus on studies. In addition, social skills are particularly close to our hearts. Our goal is for young people to develop positively on a personal level. That's why we also offer numerous opportunities in this area and are always on hand to offer advice and support to the scholarship holders."

The scholarship holders receive a monthly stipend and - through the cooperation with Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen (MR) - the opportunity to complete internships or stays abroad at MR's subsidiaries. In addition, various seminars are offered to complement the studies. Further information on the Scheubeck-Jansen Foundation and the scholarship program can be found at www.scheubeck-jansen-stiftung.de
