The Foundation provides scholarships to engineering students in different parts of the world who can prove a high standard of academic achievement and who need financial support to be able to continue their studies.
The foundation is named after Jürgen Dormann in recognition of his contribution to ABB. He served as Chairman from 2001 to 2007, and was also CEO from September 2002 to December 2004.
Scholarships, which are awarded for a maximum of five years of study, have already been given to students at partner universities in Bulgaria, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Malaysia, Poland, South Africa, Switzerland, Turkey and Vietnam. Further partnerships are planned.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of ability, potential and personal means. Only students who are nationals of the country where a partner university is based can apply. Each partner university has an application process, and the final selection is made in cooperation with ABB.
