Social responsibility

Talanx has combined its activities in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility under the heading of education and training. A central step was the establishment of a foundation. The Talanx Foundation, which was set up in 2009 with the aim of offering financial assistance to particularly strong students in insurance-related disciplines and institutes at selected universities, awarded ten study scholarships per semester for the first time in 2010. The scholarships were initially awarded for one year and may be extended for a further year on at most two occasions until completion of the standard period of study. By way of this engagement Talanx AG seeks to live up to its responsibility to society through the emphasis that it has placed on education and training. We believe it is important to offer financial assistance to particularly strong and deserving students. The aim is to support above all those students who themselves lack the resources to complete their degree in the standard period of study and with an outcome that reflects their talent if they do not receive appropriate assistance.
