Adolf Feizlmayr Foundation

Throughout his pro­fes­sio­nal care­er, Adolf Feizlmayr enjoy­ed working with talen­ted young engi­neers. See­king to fos­ter their deve­lo­p­ment, he app­lied the approach of sup­por­ting and challenging.

Given his inte­rest in deve­lo­ping young talents, com­bi­ned with his con­cern about the future of our pla­net, it was a logi­cal step for him to estab­lish the Adolf Feizlmayr Foun­da­ti­on: a foun­da­ti­on which amongst other things pur­su­es the pro­mo­ti­on of sci­ence and rese­arch for cli­ma­te chan­ge miti­ga­ti­on and grants scho­l­ar­s­hips to talen­ted and moti­va­ted stu­dents at the fol­lowing universities:

  • Mon­tan­uni­ver­si­tät Leo­ben (MUL)
  • Tech­ni­schen Uni­ver­si­tät Mün­chen (TUM)

Fur­ther details about the two scho­l­ar­s­hips are given below.


Cooperation with ILF/
Club of Young Engineers

ILF is plea­sed to sup­port the various initia­ti­ves of the Adolf Feizlmayr Foun­da­ti­on, with a focus on the scho­l­ar­s­hip pro­grams. Scho­l­ar­s­hip hol­ders auto­ma­ti­cal­ly beco­me mem­bers of ILF’s “Club of Young Engi­neers” in Aus­tria and Germany.

They are invi­ted to the Club’s regu­lar events and have the chan­ce to dis­cuss ques­ti­ons rela­ted to future care­er oppor­tu­nities in the com­pa­ny with engi­neers at ILF. Fur­ther­mo­re, scho­l­ar­s­hip hol­ders are wel­co­me to app­ly for internships or stu­dent jobs.

Quotes from Holders of the
Adolf Feizlmayr-Foundation

Stefan Oberleitner

„Through the finan­cial sup­port which the Adolf Feizlmayr Foun­da­ti­on gave me, I had the free­dom to con­cen­tra­te on my degree. Addi­tio­nal­ly, having been invi­ted as a scho­l­ar­s­hip hol­der to join the Club of Young Engi­neers, I was able to meet many ILF employees and take up a stu­dent job with the com­pa­ny. In the end, I was so impres­sed by ILF that I cho­se to start my pro­fes­sio­nal care­er here after com­ple­ting my degree.”

Stefan O., Technische Universität München

„For me, the most valu­able expe­ri­en­ces during my time as a scho­l­ar with ILF and the Adolf Feizlmayr Foun­da­ti­on were the gre­at get-tog­e­ther acti­vi­ties with the Club of Young Engi­neers, the in-depth dis­cus­sions and exchan­ge of ide­as with col­leagues, the warm and rela­xed atmo­s­phe­re, and last but not least the oppor­tu­ni­ty to expand my per­so­nal net­work. The scho­l­ar­s­hip made me rea­li­ze that, in addi­ti­on to the tasks which make up dai­ly work, a sin­ce­re, social and wel­co­m­ing cor­po­ra­te cul­tu­re with many get-tog­e­ther events is important for employee moti­va­ti­on and pro­duc­ti­vi­ty. I now defi­ni­te­ly have a new set of stan­dards for poten­ti­al future employ­ers. More of the same plea­se, ILF!”

Vicky H., Technische Universität München

„I value the per­so­nal con­ver­sa­ti­ons that I have had with Mr. Feizlmayr, which have brought new per­spec­ti­ves to pro­blems time and time again and have paved the way for fresh ide­as. It is obvious that the aca­de­mic deve­lo­p­ment of young peop­le is a topic, which is clo­se to Mr. Feizlmayr’s heart and I’m tru­ly gra­te­ful for being able to bene­fit from this.”

Tin J., Technische Universität München

„During my degree, in the cour­se of my Master’s the­sis, I was lucky enough to work on an exci­ting pro­ject abroad in coope­ra­ti­on with ILF’s Geo­tech­nics Depart­ment. This ope­ned doors for me in many ways – on a pro­fes­sio­nal, but espe­cial­ly on a pri­va­te level. The reco­gni­ti­on of our team­work in the form of the Adolf Feizlmayr Foun­da­ti­on scho­l­ar­s­hip was then the cher­ry on the cake that made my tran­si­ti­on into pro­fes­sio­nal life much easier.”

Andreas G., Montanuniverstität Leoben

„In addi­ti­on to pro­vi­ding extre­me­ly hel­pful finan­cial sup­port, the scho­l­ar­s­hip from the Adolf Feizlmayr Foun­da­ti­on, for me, also signi­fies reco­gni­ti­on of the spe­cial achie­ve­ments of com­mit­ted stu­dents. This addi­tio­nal moti­va­ti­on has hel­ped me to con­ti­nue to per­form at my best and has paved the way for me to suc­cess­ful­ly com­ple­te my degree!”

Nina R., Montanuniverstität Leoben

„Thanks to the Adolf Feizlmayr Foun­da­ti­on and its generous scho­l­ar­s­hip, it was and still is pos­si­ble for me to con­cen­tra­te on com­ple­ting my degree, even in times of cri­sis like Coro­na, without having any finan­cial dis­ad­van­ta­ges. This gives me the advan­ta­ge of being able to invest my full ener­gy in my the­sis, for which I would like to express my sin­ce­re thanks.”

Sebastian R., Montanuniverstität Leoben
