In recognition of the contributions of Max Mannheimer (1920 – 1916) for the International Youth Meeting Dachau and with the aim of keeping his legacy alive, the Max Mannheimer Scholarship has been constitued in 2018 on the initiative of the district of Dachau. Every year, up to three young people from Germany and abroad who do not have sufficient financial means are given the opportunity to attend IYM Dachau free of charge. The scholarship is organized by the IYM Dachau organizations and is under the patronage of the District Administrator Stefan Löwl.


The scholarship includes the participation fee, the travel costs and pocket money for food and drinks.


The scholarship holders process their experiences during IYM in a creative way. While being at the International Youth Meeting, they do a social media-project, a photo documentation, or a music project etc. After returning home, they present the result in their own country.


If you want to apply for the Max Mannheimer Scholarship, please send us your motivational letter and your project sketch to schuller-mueller•kjr-dachau,de. The deadline is April 15th. Tell us why you want to be a part of IYM Dachau, what experiences you have with the history of National Socialism and about your voluntary engagements.


Your support enables a young person to participate in the International Youth Meeting and spread the message of IYM after the event. If you are willing to donate to the Max Mannheimer Scholarship, please use the following donation account:
