THE DEMOCRATIC NATURE OF THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME 

The Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Studienwerk attaches great importance to the democratic nature of its scholarship programme. One of the ways in which this nature is actualised is by ELES‘s encouragement of its scholarship holders to voice their thoughts on the programme; all scholarship holders are expected to play a role in actively shaping the programme that they are taking part in. Scholarship holders are able to submit programme proposals to ELES, to suggest amendments to the annual programmes. At biannual meetings, the scholarship holders assemble to propose these suggestions to ELES.

All of the scholarship holders are organised into six regional groups, and each regional group meets regularly to plan and conduct academic and religious events. Within the regional groups, there exist smaller groups, Hillel-Hubs, and these are led by Hillel-Interns.

There is also a form of direct democracy within ELES, as elections are held within these regional groups for the positions of Regional Spokespeople. These elected scholars meet regularly with ELES and share with us the thoughts and concerns of their fellow scholarship holders. This group of Regional Spokespeople form a council – Stipendiatischer Rat (StiRa) – and elect from its ranks two General Spokespeople. These General Spokespeople act as fully-voting members of the ELES Advisory Board, and the ELES Programme Committee. They also represent the ELES scholarship holders at public occasions.

The current General Spokespeople are:

Alissa Frenkel & Anna Basina

„Das Besondere an ELES ist für mich vor allem die sehr enge Beziehung, die man über die Zeit zu den Mitarbeiter_innen sowie einem großen Teil der Stipendiat_innen des Studienwerks aufbaut. Es ermöglicht mir, regelmäßig aus meinem alltäglichen Umfeld auszubrechen und über den Austausch mit anderen Stipendiat_innen eigene Standpunkte zu hinterfragen sowie neue Ansichten zu gewinnen.“

Max Zellerhoff, Stipendiat der Promovierendenförderung
