The Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), guided by and committed to the person and principles of the first Federal Chancellor of Germany, is a political foundation operating two educational centers and twenty-one educational institutes across Germany.

At home and abroad, we employ the instruments of political education, dialogue, and consultation to promote peace, freedom, and justice. Our most important concerns include strengthening democracy, promoting and intensifying European integration, intensifying transatlantic relations, and implementing development-policy co-operation.
In Skopje the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung opened its office on July 1st, 2000 and a small small local office in Pristine in 2007. Since then various seminars, workshops and conferences were organized throughout the country. The main goal of the activities is to take part at the building of a civil society in the Republic of Macedonia where everybody respects the interests of the other, where the strong cares about the needs of the weak, and every single one understands the state as the frame in which the individual can develop according to his/hers abilities.
Scholarships are granted by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung to unusually gifted students who have completed their undergraduate studies (diploma or bachelor) and want to achieve a Master's degree. Candidates are required to display political interest and societal commitment as well as receptiveness towards Christian Democratic values. To identify talented people, to sponsor them, and to prepare them for assuming responsibility in politics and business, in science and the media, in culture and civil organizations-these are the goals of the KAS scholarship program.
