Hamburg University of Technology is responsible for the application and selection process.

Christian Bock, Vice President Controlling, IT & HR at SCHOTTEL: “In addition to the already established areas where we support young people, such as trainee programmes and theses promotion, we are taking on a special responsibility for training young talent by investing in the Deutschlandstipendium (German Scholarships). The personal interchange with scholarship holders has the purpose of creating a lively network from which all those involved in the maritime industry can benefit. We are delighted to make contact with tomorrow's best professionals today and to support them in their studies."
