Together with the Studienfonds OWL Foundation, the bpi solution helps students in the East Westphalia region with scholarships. “We are glad that we have already been able to support some of the students through our commitment. Since 2016 we have been doing our part to ensure Germany scholarship opportunities for students in this region. We’ll be there again in the 2022/23 academic year, “said Anke Kortcamp, managing director of bpi solutions gmbh & co. Kg fixed. “We place special emphasis on the departments of computer science and business informatics.”
Deutschlandstipendium has existed since 2011. As part of this program, the federal government subsidizes private grants collected by universities to fund scholarships for gifted and high-performing students. One model was Studienfonds OWL, which has been providing scholarships to five East Westphalian-Lippe universities in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia since 2006 with the help of private sponsors.
Scholarships are awarded as part of the Deutschlandstipendium program. The amount of each scholarship is 3,600 euros per year. It is paid independently of income and independently of BAföG; Money is freely available and does not have to be paid.
Henning Courtcamp, Managing Director BPI Solutions GmbH & Co. Explains: “For each of the 1,800 EUR scholarships we support, the federal government (BMBF) adds the same amount, meaning the grant is doubled and our pledge is paid twice! In addition, the foundation builds a network of universities, businesses and communities and helps scholarship holders get a foothold here after studying through other funding programs. “
The prerequisite is that applicants will be studying at Bielefeld University, Paderborn University, Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences, Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences or Detmold University of Music in the coming winter semester 2021/22. When selecting scholarships, more commitment or especially challenging personal circumstances are taken into account, along with school and study achievement.
In addition to financial aid, there is a standard support program that is currently conducted exclusively online: within webinars, discussion rounds, workshops, and conversation structures, scholarship holders have the opportunity to participate in the Foundation’s program several times a month. . In addition to the extensive services provided by the Foundation, BPI Solutions supports placement for post-graduate internship and entry-level positions. bpi Solutions hopes that the program will bring them into direct contact with committed young people who can assist the company in future software development and consulting.
