The foundation supports undergraduates, graduates, and Ph.D. students in all subjects who embrace the Green cause, share the fundamental values of the Heinrich Böll Foundation, can demonstrate an excellent academic record, and are socially and politically active. The scholarship program brings together students from all over the world. HBS gives students advice about how to plan and organize their studies and about their dissertations.
The foundation accords gender democracy and intercultural issues a special place in the promotion of its ideals. HBS encourages their scholarship holders to gather as much and as varied experience as possible and therefore supports study and practical experience abroad.
