Since 1997, the Heinrich-Böll-Foundation supports graduates from Latin America through its Sur-Place Programme in Mexico. The programme aims at strengthening and professionalising the expert and leadership potential in Central America.
In December 2003, the Heinrich-Böll-Foundation established a Sur-Place-Programme for young professionals in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. The scholarship holders engage in research about contemporary history, critical sociology and sustainable development in the Caucasus Region.

Sur Place Programme

The Heinrich-Böll-Foundation maintains three Sur-Place-Scholarship Programmes for selected regions which offer scholarships to non-German undergraduate and postgraduate students abroad. The programmes are funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Federal Foreign Office (AA). The foundation’s respective regional offices in Moscow, Mexico-City, Sarajevo and Tbilisi are in charge of the selection process and support the successful candidates.
