ORCONOMY awarded a certificate by Federal Ministry for Education and Research
As we reported in ORCONOMY News in November last year, the three CEOs at ORCONOMY GmbH were more than happy to support the Studienfonds OWL Foundation during a fundraising event initiated by Professor Dr. Leena Suhl. On her retirement from Paderborn University in Germany Professor Suhl, who is originally from Finland, had asked for donations to be made to the Studienfonds OWL Foundation instead of receiving leaving presents. The donations go towards granting privately funded scholarships to highly talented and top-performing students and thus sponsors the Federal Scholarship Scheme.
Now, the German Ministry for Education and Research has awarded ORCONOMY GmbH a certificate in which the company is officially acknowledged as a sponsor. Each German scholarship is financed in equal parts by means of federal funds and by donations from sponsors – in this case by Prof. Dr. Suhl’s fund-raising event. By donating, Dr. Stefan Bunte, Dr. Ingmar Steinzen and Dr. Jens-Peter Kempkes – all former students of the professor - wanted to take the opportunity to express their own personal gratitude for her long-standing commitment.
