Sponsorship of gifted students is already stipulated in the founding charter of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation. This principle has remained unchanged to the present day. Applicants are not required to be members of any political party; however, alongside above-average achievements in previous academic studies, commitment to political and social issues and personality are indispensable characteristics. Applicants from low-income families are given particular consideration. 1,000 euros quite constitute a full sponsorship, however scholarship holders may also earn an additional 400 euros. Sponsorship is set for a period of two years; in exceptional cases scholarships may even be granted for three years. Besides the financial aspect, scholarship holders are also offered a wide range of immaterial support. Approximately 100 graduates are sponsored by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation every year.
