This year Paul Brandauer and Kilian Oberdorfer were chosen, thanks to their outstanding achievements in their previous studies, their social commitment and their broad language skills. Nathalie Merkofer, Head Group Human Resources at LGT, and two representatives of the University of Liechtenstein, Prof. Dr. Marco J. Menichetti and Dr. oec. HSG Roger Rechsteiner, personally presented the two students with their scholarship certificates.
They applied for the LGT scholarship at the beginning of June, close to three months prior to the start of the MSc programme. Half-way through July, both received the scholarship acceptance letter and an invitation to a meeting with LGT’s head of Group Human Resources, Nathalie Merkofer. Last month, the lucky scholarship holders began their Master's programme at the University of Liechtenstein. With the LGT University Scholarship, LGT covers the semester fees of the winners for an entire year and thus supports promising young talents already during their studies.
