Santander and University of Bremen extend their partnership

  • Agreement includes another four years of support.
  • Welcome Center will open up for external research facilities.

Mönchengladbach, 4th of May 2016-. The university of Bremen and the Santander Consumer Bank, through Santander Universities, have extended their cooperation for another three years. A corresponding agreement was signed by the president of the University of Bremen, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Scholz-Reiter and Ulrich Leuschner, CEO Santander Consumer Bank, in Bremen.

Albert Einstein once said, science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it. With our engagement we want to change that and simultaneously continue with a successful partnership”, explains Ulrich Leuschner on the contract signing.

Namely with three projects: the “Welcome Centre“, the “Bremen International Scholarship Program“ and by awarding the scholarship „Deutschlandstipendium”.

With its comprehensive advice and services range the „Welcome Centre“ offers support for about 200 international scientists at the university of Bremen. The center aims to facilitate the integration into the social life in Bremen and to foster the exchange. The intention now is to open up and to further develop the services to extramural research facilities.

Moreover, Santander will proceed to support the „Bremen International Student Internship Program“. The 2011 introduced program offers research interested international students of partner universities the possibility to complete a 3 to 6 month scientific internship on the basis of their personal scientific interests. The international students will do the research together with students of the „TANDEM“scholarship.

Furthermore, the bank will offer ten “Deutschlandstipendien” to students from the University of Bremen. Worldwide more than 36.000 scholars already receive support by Santander Universities. According to a report by UNCESCO, Santander is one of the worldwide biggest private sponsor of higher education.

„With the investment in science and research we show our responsibility for society. This is basic work in order to develop the resource education, says CEO Ulrich Leuschner. 

Santander supports the University of Bremen on behalf of Santander Universities Germany, a part of the global corporate area “Santander Universidades”. From 2011 on, Santander Universities Germany has launched 11 partnerships with local universities as well as the German Universities Association (Ger. Deutscher Hochschulverband) within the scope of the bank’s social commitment.

Banco Santander is the largest investor in education in the world (Varkey/UNESCO report – Fortune 500). This initiative is backed by Santander Universities which has 1,200 collaboration agreements in place with universities and institutions worldwide.
