The online scholarship and career network brings outstanding high school students, college/university students and doctoral candidates together with renowned colleges/universities and leading corporations using the Internet platform in combination with workshops and recruiting events.
In addition, e-fellows.net is the first online scholarship network in Europe with the goal of identifying and fostering the specialists and managers of tomorrow.
Roche Diagnostics has cooperated with this network since 2002 and has been able to recruit especially qualified and motivated talents using the contact opportunities made available to candidates.
Both the positive economic situation in the county of Loerrach and its proximity to the Swiss border dictate a high need for specialists. To make the region of long-term interest to specialist workers, the business region of Südwest GmbH, the county of Loerrach and local business have created the online specialist portal SW+.
Roche Pharma AG is one of the three main sponsors.
The portal has three main focuses: work, experience and quality of living. In addition to career tips, SW+ provides information on current events, attractive excursion destinations, the housing market and possibilities for childcare.
The Germany Scholarship
The Germany Scholarship is an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, which supports current and incoming students financially. The scholarship holders do not only need to show outstanding results during their studies, but also social commitment and a sense of responsibility. The scholarship is available to all students and is awarded regardless of the parents’ income. The scholarship is financed partly by the federal republic of Germany and partly by a sponsor, like Roche.
Roche has, for several years now, appreciated the Germany Scholarship as a possibility to support and promote young talents. 20 Scholarships are sponsored by Roche every year. The scholarship holders do not only receive financial support but will also become members of the Fostering Young Talent Program Roche Evolution and thereby, receive the chance to build up a network at Roche and develop themselves further through the participation of seminars.
