Four weeks ago I applied for the “Student Commitment Scholarship” at WHU. This scholarship is for students who are involved in one or more of the following areas:
- Engagement for the student body in general
- Engagement for a student initiative in a responsible position
- Engagement outside of the university with a charitable background
I was required to write a 2 page motivation letter (which, thanks to the revisions of several friends looked quite good in the end) and provide sufficient proof of my engagement. In my letter I referenced among others my work to accommodate new students, my engagement as head of finance for WHU First Responder e.V. and my job as fundraiser for NPOs like WWF, Malteser and SOS Kinderdörfer. Fortunately, I was provided by very nice reference letters by the First Responders, the DLRG and talk2move.
Today, I am incredibly happy to report that I am one of the scholars receiving a significant remission of the tuition fee 🙂 .
