Our Donors & supporters

Thank you!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our donors and supporters. Your support makes it possible for the next generation of young, talented people to visit or study at Harvard University.

The Harvard Scholarship Foundation Germany e.V. aims to support young people from less privileged backgrounds to gain access to higher education at one of the world´s best universities. In this way, we work for a more inclusive society, one that integrates future young leaders who otherwise may be left behind. It benefits us all. Let´s not forget that women have only been allowed to teach, research and study at universities like Harvard since the last century. For too long, their access to education at this level was also restricted, depriving the world of many potential breakthroughs. Once given the opportunity to study, many of these women made it their life´s work to make universities more inclusive. Our donors support this same goal today, with their financial support.
