Most of the funds for students are coming from either companies or foundations themselves.
Companies are even allowed to tag a name to the fellowship, such as for example Company x-fellowship.
Some companies and banks prefer to support fellows from country X where they want to contribute
Or broaden their network, since fellows can become the linking pin after return to their country
Other supporters are foundations that really have a preference for:
Education, because they believe - as we do- that knowledge is a key treasure
A certain country they want to support explicitly by helping a fellow from that specific (leser developed) country
In any case: the cooperation has always been very rewarding and many proud people can look each other in the eye on the day they receive their diploms.
If you want to support a fellow (or more) please contact the University of your preference
We will be more than happy to answer all your questions!
