Support Hertie School students: A win-win partnership

There are many good reasons to support Hertie School students: doing so helps equip young leaders who will usher in a better future for our economy; it takes personal responsibility for the public good; and it helps ensure that an even wider spectrum of students can access high-quality education. Not to mention the fact that supporting Hertie School students is a step that will almost surely benefit your organisation. 


Matching funds scholarships

As a partner of the matching funds scholarships initiative, you enable talented and high-achieving applicants to finance their studies in public policy and international affairs, securing diversity and equal opportunities within the school’s student community. Your partial scholarship donation will be doubled by the Hertie School, thus amplifying the impact of your contribution. In addition, you can benefit from meeting these highly qualified candidates early on and introducing them to your organisation in the context of an internship or Professional Year.


PhD scholarships

By becoming a PhD scholarships partner, your organisation supports excellent young academics who are participating in our three-year Doctoral Programme and are closely connected to the School’s research agenda. Help enable these exceptional rising scholars to pursue their degree at the doctoral level and simultaneously promote innovative research projects.


“Thanks to the Hertie School’s network of partners, I became aware of a wide spectrum of internship opportunities. During my internship I was able to apply several of the tools we learned in the classroom – and was also able to learn new skills.”

“Thanks to a full scholarship, I could finish my studies at the Hertie School in 2014. I especially liked being confronted with the diverse experiences of students from all over the world - one is constantly exposed to different ways of viewing things.”

“The master’s degree at the Hertie School will help me develop my career in the field of cultural policy. This has only been possible through financial assistance in the form of a partial scholarship. I am very grateful for this support.”

“In Afghanistan, a large sector of society is excluded from political decision-making processes. I believe that the MPP will help me to take on a key role in the promotion of women in the future. My scholarship has helped me to focus on this goal.”
