Scholarship at The Heinrich Böll Foundation
01 March, 2018
The Heinrich Böll Foundation, which maintains close ties with the German Green Party, awards scholarships for doctoral candidates from any discipline and all types of higher-education institutions. Candidates are tomorrow's experts and leaders and have a positive attitude towards green values. They are prepared to take responsibility and advocate the Foundation's ideals in an international context: the concepts of sustainability, self-determination, equal opportunities and justice as well as the encouragement of human rights and the promotion of a democratic culture. Every year 30 to 60 new scholars are granted a monthly stipend of EUR 1,050, irrespective of income, plus a research cost allowance of EUR 100 and family- and child allowances, if necessary. Comprehensive non-material support is an integral part of the programme. Application deadlines are March 1st and September 1st of each year.
