Who are "alumni"?
The ‘alumni and friends of the Hermann-Lietz-Schulen e.V.’ association, with more than 100 years’ history, is one of the oldest and – with about 5,000 alumni of all ages and about 2,000 members - one of the biggest associations of past students in Germany.
What is the purpose of this network?
The goal of this association is still as fresh as Hermann Lietz had once put it: We wish to actively support the Lietz dormitories inward and to the outside, and support their students and teachers as well as past students and friends. "Lietzers helping Lietzers" is one of the core mottos in our network.
How do the alumni help?
In the year 2004, an independent foundation was formed from the special assets "Scholarship funds" of the association of alumni and friends of the Hermann-Lietz-Schulen e. V. (registered association of Hermann Lietz Schools. In cooperation with these scholarship funds, the Hermann-Lietz-Schulen foundation grants, from the 11th class in Castle Bieberstein, several scholarships annually, of up to 50 percent of the upbringing contract. To get such financial aid, the applicants must demonstrate good academic performance, stand out through extra-curricular activities and be ready to place their skills at the service of the community.
