Scholarships and Cultural Activities

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung awards scholarships to students and graduates of exceptional academic achievement and outstanding political or social commitment. German scholars are expected to endorse Christian Democratic social and political values. Currently we provide financial support for about 2,000 students. An extensive seminar programme is part of the numerous activities offered to our scholars.

The scholarships are open to young German students, journalists and graduate students as well as to young graduate students from abroad who study in Germany.

More than 10.000 alumni worldwide are keeping in touch with each other and with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. They are organized in 50 local groups in Germany and abroad, including Brussels, London, Strasbourg and Switzerland. Foreign alumni have formed groups in several countries.

We also support writers, artists and musicians. In cooperation with them, we offer a wide range of exhibitions, readings, symposiums, and workshops. A highly appreciated literary prize is awarded annually to modern authors.
