Qualifications for working internationally
Haniel Scholarship Program
The German students who qualify for a Haniel scholarship from the study foundation each year are given the perfect preparation for a future in an international company. This gives them the opportunity to then embark on business-related postgraduate studies at leading universities around the world.
MCCLOY ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM (USA)
The McCloy Academic Scholarship Program and the Haniel Foundation have been promoting transatlantic dialogue between America and Europe since 2002. The program enables up to six stipendiaries to study at the renowned Harvard University for two years.
The European way
European Haniel Program
With the support of the Haniel Foundation, the University of St. Gallen and the Copenhagen Business School encourage young managers to think about their actions in order to excel. The key questions considered are the roles that cultural studies and social sciences can play in management and entrepreneur training.
University of Duisburg-Essen
Professorship in Entrepreneurship and Migration
The Haniel Foundation is supporting InZentIM – the Interdisciplinary Centre for Integration and Migration Research at the University of Duisburg-Essen – with one of five professorships, co-funded by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The professorship is intended to investigate, in particular, how and why people who have come to us from other cultures pursue their careers by establishing their own company or start-up business.
Willy Brandt School of Public Policy
A business mindset and application-oriented analytical methods are in demand not only in the private sector. They are also used by decision makers in not-for-profit organizations, who thus promote sociopolitical change. The Haniel Foundation has therefore been lending its support to the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy since the school was founded.
More than just a scholarship
The Haniel Foundation brings its stipendiaries and alumni together at its annual stipendiary seminar, as a platform for them to forge links and build up their networks. The programme features presentations given by experts, panel discussions and workshops.
The historical basis for the friendship between Germany and America is very broad. However, the two countries will not be able to draw on this relationship forever. How the McCloy program is helping to shape the future of transatlantic relations.
Scholarships in Germany
Targeted talent development makes it possible for gifted young people to bring their bright ideas to life for the good of society. Nevertheless, many scholarship recipients still have to justify the kind of support they receive. The dedication shown by former recipients, however, proves that this support makes a lasting difference – far beyond the length of the study program and the individual recipients.
Willy Brandt School
The Willy Brandt School of Public Policy – founded in 2002 as the Erfurt School of Public Policy and renamed in 2009 – was Germany’s first public institution to offer a two-year international post-graduate course of study in this subject. The English-language Master of Public Policy places students in a uniquely international and intercultural environment: in 2015, around 120 young people from more than 50 countries studied at the school.
McCloy Academic Scholarship Program
Since 1983, the McCloy Scholarship has been offering outstanding students an opportunity to spend two years at Harvard. Susanna Krüger, Frank Müller, Friederike von Reden and Stefan Wisbauer all jumped at the chance. Four fellows from four different years talk about their experiences.
