Acknowledgement for top performance
Here at LANXESS we place a major focus on social responsibility and commitment for education. One of our most important commitments is to support young talents while they are studying or completing their doctorates and help them off to a successful start to their careers. We award scholarships to particularly gifted young talents so that the best students can realise their full potentials.
LANXESS supports young academics at eight universities in Germany with scholarships for upcoming scientists, engineers and business students. The Germany Scholarship is a scholarship that is financed jointly by the German federal government and private sponsors, and aims to support particularly gifted undergraduates at German universities. In addition to the RWTH Aachen, the TU Dortmund and the University of Cologne, where we have been involved from the outset, LANXESS has now also been sponsoring five further universities since the winter semester of 2012/2013: The University of Münster, Cologne University of Applied Sciences, Aachen University of Applied Sciences, Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences as well as the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences.
Our aim is not only to provide financial support, but also to build up close personal links to the scholarship holders and thus to help them as best we can through their studies. The HR-Career-Management group has developed a special program with individual advisory components to this end. These include, for example, arranging internships and final paper projects, annual network meetings as well as invitations to company and production site tours. Best outlooks: After graduation the scholarship holders are more than welcome to join LANXESS as young professionals.
