RAL COLOUR is Sponsor of the Deutschlandstipendium 2018

Deutschlandstipendium supports students whose career promises outstanding achievements in their studies and career. The RAL gGmbH supports two students of the University of Applied Arts and Science in Hildesheim and the Bergische Universität Wuppertal in the amount of 300 Euro per month. The Deutschlandstipendium is funded half by the federal government and half by private donors. The scholarship certificates were handed over on 24.10.2017 and 04.11.2017. Both scholarship students focus on colour and colour design in their degree programs.

For Markus Frentrop, Area Manager RAL COLOURS, promoting young colour-enthusiastic students is an investment in tomorrow's skilled workers. "On the one hand through the regular exchange with the scholarship holders we can pass on much of our experience to young people and at the same time benefit from the latest knowledge of our scholarship holders," says Frentrop. "On the other hand, with our involvement in the Deutschlandstipendium we are fulfilling our mission as a non-profit organization".

With the universities in Wuppertal and Hildesheim, RAL has been involved as sponsor in two institutions that have been intensively involved with colour design for many years and already have a good and close cooperation with RAL. Thus, professors of both institutions lecture also in the RAL ACADEMY. In addition, the HAWK in Hildesheim is currently the solely university in Europe offering its own degree program in colour design.

"Our commitment to the Deutschlandstipendium underscores our claim of "Innovation & Reliability ". For RAL COLOURS, this means constantly developing our range of products and services, and optimally adapting them to the needs of our customers in a wide range of areas. To this end, the now strengthened and institutionalized support of young students is a particularly good fit ", continues Frentrop.
