The Merz Akademie Förderkreis was founded in 1993 with the aim of providing immaterial and material support to the Merz Akademie.

The members support the university in an advisory and supportive manner and contribute to the long-term success of the Merz Akademie through intensive knowledge transfer, financial support and active public relations activities. Donations will reach the Merz Akademie in full and are tax-deductible.

In order to encourage the best people to study at the Merz Akademie, the Förderkreis awards scholarships that cover half of the tuition fees. Applications are open to Bachelor’s and Master’s students who have passed the entrance examination with the highest number of points or the first university degree with very good results.

The Förderkreis is made up of outstanding representatives of culture, industry and business, science and the arts. It is chaired by Prof. Dr. Eckarth Seith.
