Scholarships for Undergraduates, Graduates, and PhD Students


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.

Please note: We accept only online applications.

The application portal is now open until 1st September 2013. Please upload your documents at an early stage and not in the last two days before the application deadline, if possible. This will help us to avoid any technical problems which can be caused by the increasing demands of our portal. Many thanks in advance!
