Foundations and Corporate Sponsors
The “Germany scholarship” of the German Federal Government is a national scholarship programme that intends to promote particularly gifted and skilled students at German universities. The University of Rostock welcomes and supports this programme. From winter term 2011/12 on, the university promotes the first 48 students.
The scholarships of 300 Euros per months are financed by private sponsors (companies, foundations, private persons) and the Federal Government jointly.
University life in all its facets is also shaped and stimulated by the efforts of sponsors and benefactors. They give academic life additional vigor by supporting teaching and research, courses and publications. They help gifted students in particular with scholarships and awards. In this way, they supplement the opportunities offered by the university itself above and beyond the limits of public funding and at the same time create a climate of commitment and long-term bonds to the university.
The University of Rostock regularly receives donations for these purposes, and in addition, there are the following two foundations:
The purpose of this foundation is to use its earnings to promote historical research on the Early Modern period (sixteenth to eighteenth centuries). Among other things, it promotes publications and academic conferences. The founder is Ms. Brigitta Oestreich. The Oestreich Foundation, which is devoted exclusively to charitable purposes, began its work in May 1994 and is held in trust by the University of Rostock.
You will find information on the Oestreich Foundation at this link.
Friedrich and Irmgard Harms Foundation
The Friedrich and Irmgard Harms Foundation promotes exceptional, advanced students, as well as young scientists and scholars, who are in their graduation phase. Applicants from the university and its partner institutions of higher learning in foreign countries can be provided with scholarships if they can show themselves to be in need. Originally this foundation, established in 1994, sponsored the university's Faculty of Agricultural Science. In 2005, ownership of a student dormitory built by the founder, Friedrich Harms, was transferred to the university. This house is administered by a Foundation Council.
