Programme Description

The programme is aimed at financing sur-place-sponsorships in three different regions: Russia, Central America (and the Caribbean) and the Caucasus. Scholars receive their student or post-graduate scholarship on-site to carry out their studies or research projects. The programmes, however, differ from each other in background, aim, funding modalities and grant amounts. The Heinrich Böll Foundation's International Offices in Moscow, Mexico City and Tiflis are responsible for selecting and mentoring the respective candidates and will give detailed information on the single programmes' modalities.
