Support for students

The Hans-Böckler-Foundation is the DGB's co-determination, research and study funding organization.

Since 2007, the Hans-Böckler-Foundation has been awarding 30 % of their scholarships through the Böckler-Aktion-Bildung. They are explicitly awarded to applicants who are socially committed but whose parents cannot support them in their wish to study. This is a contribution to more equal opportunities in the higher education system.

Around 70% of the scholarships awarded under the Böckler-Aktion-Bildung go to young people with a migrant background. With the Böckler-Aktion-Bildung, the Hans-Böckler-Foundation awards scholarships to young people who could not afford to study in any other way. It is important to us that the applicants have not only performed well at school but have already volunteered during their school years and would like to continue doing so during their studies.
