Entrepreneur Hans-Peter Wild, who studied law at Heidelberg University, has been a supporter of his alma mater for many years. His decades of loyalty is once again evident in the support of the Hans-Peter Wild Talent Scholarships. With the scholarship programme, Dr Wild would like to help to raise enthusiasm among the brightest minds in the field of mathematics, informatics, the natural sciences, or technology from Germany and abroad to study at Heidelberg University and to enable them to enjoy the best conditions right from the start.


„Whoever wants to make things happen, needs confidence in their own abilities but also the right circumstances. Helping students and researchers of Heidelberg University to succeed in their endeavours is extremely important to me. That is why founding the scholarship programme at Heidelberg University was a heartfelt wish.“
