Heinrich Boll Scholarships, Germany

Thursday, January 10, 2013
The Heinrich Böll Foundation grants scholarships to approximately 1,000 undergraduates, graduates, and doctoral students of all subjects and nationalities per year, who are pursuing their degree at universities, universities of applied sciences (‘Fachhochschulen’), or universities of the arts (‘Kunsthochschulen’). 
 
We expect our scholarship recipients to have excellent academic records, to be socially and politically engaged, and to have an active interest in the basic values of the foundation: ecology and sustainability, democracy and human rights, self determination and justice.

  • Special (but not exclusive) focus regions are: Central/Eastern Europe, EU neighbourhood/CIS; Middle East/Northern Africa; transition and newly industrialised countries as well as conflict regions worldwide.
  • Applications are possible before you begin your Master’s programme or within the first semester (at the time of application). 
  • Applicants must have already obtained a first university degree.
  • Good or very good knowledge of German is a requirement. The selection workshops are generally held in German (if a scholarship is granted, additional German language courses can be financed).
