Audi Scholarship Program

The entire automotive industry is in the midst of transition: new competitors, new customer requirements, new business segments. This change is being driven by the megatrends of digitalisation, urbanisation and sustainability. 

Scarce resources, environmental destruction, climate change and population growth – these are just a few aspects that are influencing society, politics and business. With the advancing change in social values, for more and more people, sustainability is becoming part of their outlook on life. We at Audi build cars that reflect this mindset. To do so, we are pushing forward with the development of innovative drive technologies and pursuing the principles of a sustainable recycling economy. 

The challenges that confront us are increasingly complex. Only by working with partners inside and outside our company can we develop good concepts and sound solutions to successfully cope with these challenges.

Audi is therefore collaborating with One Young World to offer scholarships to 10 inspiring young leaders to attend this year’s One Young World Summit 2017 in Bogotá, Colombia.
