NN Future Matters Scholarship

12 March 2017

At NN Life Luxembourg, it is a priority to build the economic capabilities of today’s young people. We take this social responsibility very seriously, and thus are pleased to offer young people - who are in need of support - access to our means and expertise, in turn helping them create social and economic opportunities. One way in which we do this, is by facilitating scholarships for international Master’s students.This programme gives students the opportunity to simultaneously complete a Master’s programme while gaining the impactful experience of living and studying abroad.

The NN Future Matters scholarship offers first generation students with a clear financial need the chance to pursue a Master’s degree abroad. These scholarships are available to students - from selected countries among which Luxembourg - who wish to complete a Master’s programme in the field of Finance, Risk or Economics in the Netherlands. The NN Future Matters scholarship programme, is a collaboration between NN and EP-Nuffic, a Dutch organization working on the internationalisation of (higher) education.During their Master’s, the students are matched with a mentor from NN, who helps, supports and guides them through the year. In addition to being matched with an NN mentor, the students are invited to follow various workshops organised by NN.

Are you planning to do your master’s abroad? Are you studying in the field of finance, risk management or economics? Do you need financial support for your studies? And are you ready for the chance of a lifetime? Apply for the NN Future Matters Scholarship in the Netherlands before May 1st 2017. More information available on the flyer and on the following website. 

To illustrate the NN Future Matters scholarship programme and students, a video portrait of scholarship student Maria has been created. Last year, she finished her Master’s in Economics at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

NN Life Luxembourg is engaged in society

29 July 2015

Like every other business, NN Life Luxembourg aims to be profitable and at the same time has a responsibility to be socially engaged. This role gives our company a broader sense of purpose. By aligning our business and corporate social responsibility initiatives, the company can support people in improving their life quality. 

Make-A-Wish donation

NN Life Luxembourg and NN Investment Partners took the opportunity of the New Brand Gala Dinner to make a donation to a charity association. Mr Marcel Hagendoorn, President of Make-A-Wish Luxembourg, received a cheque for the amount of € 10.000 to support the association. Make-A-Wish is a charity which grants wishes to terminally ill children in Luxembourg and our donation will help to achieve wishes for 2-3 children. Because what matters to them, also matters to us.

 

ING Night Marathon 2015 sponsoring

But being socially engaged is not only about donation; it is also about supporting healthy behaviors and promoting healthy lifestyles.  At NN Group, sport and more specifically running is part of the culture. Our history shows we have been in running sponsorship since years. In Luxembourg, we are proud to have continued this legacy. 

NN Life Luxembourg and NN Investment Partners sponsored the main sport event in Luxembourg, the ING Night Marathon, on Saturday 30th of May 2015 for its 10th edition. This event gathered 11,000 runners from all around the world and 100,000 supporters in Luxembourg streets.

For brand awareness prospective, this sponsoring was a big opportunity. In addition to the NN beach flags and banners that were visible all along the race, NN Life Luxembourg and NN Investment Partners sponsored 2 key VIP areas of the race. Both companies hosted the NN tribune − actually the only tribune at the departure lane, allowing our guests benefiting from a unique view on the start lane − and the NN Runners’ lounge offering a privileged access to a cozy area near the arrival line.

But the sponsoring did not only consist in hospitality. As socially engaged companies, NN Life Luxembourg and NN Investment Partners wanted to do more. By sponsoring “the 5k run for success” race during the ING Night Marathon Luxembourg 2015, the Luxembourg insurance and investment companies show their commitment to healthier lifestyles through running activities. More than 500 runners participated to this race whose starting point where based under the “Your miles matter” arch.
