Mission Statement: Promotion of Young Talent:
- We regard the promotion of young talent as a contribution to nurturing democratic culture.
- Our scholarship policy combines the principle of high achievement with that of equal opportunities. This is expressed particularly in our promotion of previously under-represented target groups.
- We accord special importance to gender-democratic and intercultural issues as part of our non-material promotion. Attention to and respect for diversity are constitutive elements of our promotion practice.
- Our forms of promotion are both material (scholarships, book grants, foreign study grants) and non-material (supporting programme, networking, advice).
- Our promotion is committed to the idea of sustainability. One of the focal points of the supporting programme is education for sustainable development. For our doctoral scholarships, projects in transformation and sustainability research are particularly welcomed.
- We support young people in their personal development, promote the acquisition of cross-disciplinary skills, and encourage interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary dialogue.
- We create forums for debate and collaboration between students, newly qualified academics, former scholarship recipients, established researchers and Green politicians. We promote the formation of Green networks on a national, European and international level.
- We emphasise the spirit of participation and promote our scholarship recipients’ sense of initiative, responsibility, and participation in decision-making. We expect work with our scholarship recipients to be constructive, solution-oriented and goal-oriented, and we encourage a culture of communication that contributes to this objective.
