About us

We are the Deutsche Talente Stiftung (DTS i.G.), a private German foundation. We support high school graduates, students and young university graduates. We want to give people with talents professional orientation and be a strong partner for their career start. In doing so, we encourage people to assume social responsibility.

Goal of the foundation

(1.) To inspire young people to discover their talents, to strengthen them and to transform them into designs for the future. 

(2.) To strengthen practice-oriented university teaching, to network students and graduates with employers, and thus to facilitate career entry. 

(3.) Strengthen volunteerism for the socially disadvantaged.

(4.) Promote talent from the fields of science, art and culture and open up career prospects.

(5.) Scientifically research the working world of the future and equip people with key competencies.

Support us!

If you also believe that young talents are our future, please support our initiative and projects.

Thank you very much for your support!
