Ms. Wittmann, what did you expect from the Max Weber-Abend?
I attended the Max Weber Evening because I wanted to learn more about the Max Weber Program funding and was curious to meet the other new fellows.
What were your specific questions or concerns?
Since I would like to go abroad during my studies, I was very pleased to learn that financial support for stays abroad is also offered by the Max Weber Program.
How did you experience the digital welcoming evening?
Despite the online format, the evening took place in a very cordial and open atmosphere. After some general information about the Max Weber Program, we were together in our regional groups, where common online games made for a fun evening. During the evening we had the opportunity to meet many helpful, interesting and open-minded people from different fields and to exchange ideas.
What were your most important experiences at the Max Weber-Abend?
The Max Weber Program is a personal life enrichment for me, as it gives you the opportunity to grow personally and intellectually beyond your own nose, as well as to get to know special personalities. The fellowship opened up opportunities for me to meet people and have conversations that I would never have had otherwise. In addition, at the Max Weber-Abend, you were motivated to become active oneself and to contribute your own ideas to the program.
What are you most looking forward to during your funding period?
During my sponsorship period, I am most looking forward to getting to know other fellows and to my personal development, which is optimally supported and accompanied by the Max Weber Program, from language courses to soft skill seminars.
