Social Project Contest 2017: Application Period has Started!

The countdown is on: until June 11, student initiatives and social institutions from Mannheim are invited to apply for the Social Project Contest with their charitable projects. Up to € 1,200 will be awarded to the winning project.

For the second time already, the Business School of the University of Mannheim and the Mannheim Business School are tendering the Social Project Contest. A sustainable or charitable project, which is lacking financial start-up capital, will be supported. The funding sum consists of the donations of the wine sale at the Bachelor's graduation ceremony at the end of July. One Euro of each bottle of wine sold is placed in the donation pot. The amount raised is again doubled by the Mannheim Business School. Last year, nearly € 1,200 Euros could be raised. The sum was donated to four local student initiatives and their joint project "Coffee to Go - Drink it, Keep it", a project focused on the reduction of coffee cup waste on campus.

Application period runs until June 11

Student initiatives and social institutions from Mannheim are invited to apply with their charitable project until June 11. A short, informal motivation letter (in German or English) must be submitted with a short presentation of the initiative / institution and description of the project which needs specific funding. Applications and questions can be sent to presse(at)bwl.uni-mannheim.de (Liane Weitert and Laura Miller).

The winner of the contest will be announced on the homepage at the beginning of September. The legal process is excluded.
