Macromedia Community e.V. Friends and Supporters of Macromedia University


The non-profit association supports and promotes students of Macromedia University with scholarships. The overall intent is to make exceptional efforts and accomplishments possible or to honor them accordingly.

One of the already existing and most successful scholarship programs is the Thomas Heinrich Scholarship.

The Thomas Heinrich Scholarship, funded by the Heinrich Family, and the Macromedia University of Applied Sciences, provides support to exceptionally talented undergraduate students and enables them access to international experience.

Thomas Heinrich, a Macromedia University undergraduate student in Media Management with a specialization in Music Management, passed away under violent circumstances in December  2012 at the age of 22 while studying abroad in Dublin. He is remembered as an enthusiastic, caring, broad-minded, vivacious young man with exceptionally strong interpersonal skills. This scholarship program was created with the shared belief that cross-cultural understanding and cooperation are the foundations of peaceful co-existence.

The scholarship will be awarded each year to an undergraduate student (male or female) attending Macromedia University who demonstrates a particularly good knowledge of the local language (English) and substantial community involvement. The aim is to encourage the student to social involvement with fellow students, faculty and others in the vicinity of the university, in addition to academic work. The student shall serve as a cultural ambassador for his or her homeland while simultaneously gaining a deeper and better understanding of the culture of the host country.

The scholarship of 4,500 Euro will be awarded for study at one of the Macromedia partner universities, and is supposed to cover the cost of travelling, accommodation and tuition fees for the duration of the semester abroad.
