During this year’s award ceremony on October 17th, 2018, 33 students from Anhalt University were honored for their excellent academic performance with a Deutschlandstipendium (Germany scholarship), including two scholarship recipients supported by ALD Vacuum Technologies GmbH. After the ceremony distributing certificates to both the sponsors and scholarship recipients, the two groups got the chance to get to know each other better during a get-together followed by dinner.
