The National Scholarship Program (Deutschlandstipendium) is awarded to students who show outstanding academic achievements and are involved in social activities. It is made possible by companies, institutions and individuals. Funds from the national and NRW governments further complement the scholarship sums. They are intended to be a contribution to students' living costs and ideally, they should enable them to concentrate on their studies rather than worrying about financial issues. Thus, they considerably help to improve students' study conditions.

We are happy to announce that this year four CompEng students were chosen to benefit from this scholarship: Stephanie Roskosch, Xuling Ye, Yaman Zendacki, Mehmed Numanovic and Mazen Draw. On 26th of November 2018, the scholarship was awarded to our scholarship holders at the Audimax.

Not only do our scholarship holders stand out through their remarkable academic performance but furthermore due to their voluntary commitment. Ms Roskosch for instance gives swimming as well as tutoring lessons; Ms Ye is committed in her work for the environment as she collects garbage at the Kemnade Lake in Bochum as well as she is active in planting trees. Mr. Zendacki is an active member of the Computational Engineering Student Council. As a course guide, he helps other students “overcoming the obstacles of studying” (Yaman Zendacki)

After hearing about the scholarship, our students initially shared the good news with their loved ones: “I texted my family and my father was so happy for me, he couldn’t sleep all night!” (Xuling Ye) “I told my boyfriend right away. We are planning to move in together and the scholarship makes it possible!” (Stephanie Roskosch) “I was at Decathlon with my friend Tariq. He was in the changing room when I got the message. He was very happy for me. I immediately texted my parents, they are very happy and proud.” (Yaman Zendacki)

We are glad our students get the chance to receive financial support through this scholarship programme. During the ceremony, Mr. Zendacki met one of the sponsors: “I had a chat with him, it was really nice. He has been a scholarship holder of the Deutschlandstipendium himself. I think it would be great to be able to become a sponsor as well in the future. This way I could support the new generation of students.”

We wish the four scholarship holders all the best for their future. We are proud to have you on board!

Many thanks to the RUB Rectorate and the RUB Department of PR and Communication/ Fundraising and Alumni for making this scholarship available to the students.
