The Deutsche Börse Scholarship and Internship was awarded each year to a first-year undergraduate at St Anne’s, and was worth up to £30,000.
The scholarship of £10,000 per academic year was awarded by the Deutsche Borse group, the world’s largest derivative exchange. It was intended to support an outstanding student to achieve their potential, regardless of their financial background.
The scholarship was awarded at the start of the applicant's second year and renewed, subject to satisfactory academic performance, for the remaining years of the student's course.
Successful students also undertook a 4-6 week paid internship in the Deutsche Börse Frankfurt Office after their second year of study. St Anne's College and Deutsche Börse provided all travel, accommodation and living expenses. No German language skills were required for the internship.
This fantastic opportunity was open to current first-year undergraduates (excluding Visiting Students) who were studying one of the following courses: Computer Science, Engineering Science, Materials Science, Mathematics (including joint schools), Physics and PPE.
Unfortunately this opportunity will not be offered beyond 2018.
"Based in Frankfurt, I was fortunate to experience an international working environment. Deutsche Borse has an extensive student and intern programme, which provided the opportunity to network and interact with and learn from people of different backgrounds and cultures. I appreciated the professionalism of the company and I was proud to be associated with Deutsche Borse."
