The Study Compass supports young people from families without academic experience in discovering their potential and finding an individually suitable educational path after graduation. Participants receive intensive support and guidance for three years as they make the transition from school to university or to vocational training. In the course of the program, young people learn to shape their educational path independently and make future-oriented career decisions. The support begins in the penultimate school year and accompanies the scholarship holders until the end of the first year of study or training. In addition to training courses and workshops to get to know one's own strengths, the scholarship includes the teaching of skills that will be required for the working world of the future and key topics such as digital skills, entrepreneurship, cultural education or STEM.
Young people from the Oberbergischer Kreis district who will graduate from high school in 2023 and whose parents have not studied can apply on www.studienkompass.de/bewerbung by March 21, 2021.
