Christoph Bierer, former scholar

There are three points about the Sartorius Scholarship Program that are very important to me: the practical experience, for example working in the lab, the network with other scholars and teams and the mentoring program.

Johanna Wilzmann, Organizational Change Management Specialist

I appreciated the regular exchange with my mentor, experts and other scholars. Furthermore I really enjoyed working on internationally oriented teams and projects. At the same time the family-like culture made me feel immediately integrated as part of the organization.

Tobias Pommerenk, Project Manager Validation Services

I had already come into contact with Sartorius products during my bachelor's degree and an internship at a pharmaceutical company. When I was looking for a practice-based master's program, I came across the Sartorius Scholarship. The financial support provided by the scholarship enabled me to fully concentrate on my master's degree in biotechnology. At the same time, I gained practical insights that were very helpful for my studies, had the chance to receive further training in project management and made a lot of contacts within the company.

Jennifer Labisch, Scientist

My mentor supported me in establishing contacts with other work groups. This gave me insights into various topics and projects and allowed me to align my internship and master's thesis in a way that matched my interests.

Jakob Tolk, Team Lead Production

Regular discussions with my mentor was the most valuable part of my Sartorius scholarship. Collaboration was always helpful and based on trust. At the same time, I had all the freedom I needed to decide on matters involving my studies and on my further career.

Svenja Guillaume, Technical Training Professional

I was surprised at how flexible Sartorius was in customizing its scholarship. As my master's program was very time-consuming, I couldn't afford to work several months as an intern. So my mentor organized one-day workshops every month, where I could talk to him and to experts from other departments, present my ideas and collect useful information for my thesis.
