The Heinrich Böll Foundation actively supports the democracy movements in Tunisia and Egypt. In a newly developed special programme, the scholarship department of the Foundation is offering, with the kind support of the Federal Foreign Office, scholarships to Tunisian and Egyptian students who want to study in Germany.
The International Scholarship Programme for Tunisian and Egyptian Students wants to give future leaders from Tunisia and Egypt the opportunity to get to know the German academic system and to actively engage themselves with the working areas of the Heinrich Böll Foundation (e.g. democracy and human rights, ecology/climate policy, international cooperation, gender, education policy...).
Within the framework of our seminar programme, scholarship holders have an opportunity to network with other students from Germany and all over the world as well as with experts from the Foundation.
