The 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. They come from any country and approve of 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 about 180 new scholars are accepted into the Programme. To be admitted candidates propose a convincing, ambitious and innovative research project. The Programme furthermore offers trainings and seminars geared to real-world needs on topics such as science communication, event planning, publication strategies or higher-education didactics.
