the scholarship for socially committed

aims to motivate young people who come to Germany to get involved and to assume responsibility as active members of our democratic society.  Given the socio-political developments of recent years, it is all the more important at present to close the growing gap in our social solidarity. And that is precisely why we want to strengthen commitment to a compassionate, responsible, pluralistic community.  We oppose exclusion – together and with conviction.


offers two young people the chance to receive free professional German lessons for six months.  Language is rightly regarded as one of the most important keys to successful integration into a society.

Outside their German lessons the scholarship holders will have the opportunity to gain intensive impressions of social work through voluntary work at AWO ExChange and the MOVEglobal society.  In this way, their active integration can be promoted through the perception of their own responsibility and the contribution of their own abilities, thus enriching the solidarity of our society.
