In the managing board of the Harvard Scholarship Foundation Germany e.V. the presidents of the five Harvard Alumni Clubs in Germany united the power of the individual clubs with their strong member communities for the purpose of promoting the Harvard educational experience.
Tobias Pusch, LLM ’02, President of Harvard University Alumni Club of Berlin e.V.
President of Harvard Scholarship Foundation Germany e.V.
„My time at Harvard was transformational on many levels. I met amazing and inspiring people from all over the world which I now call my friends. Harvard has opened my eyes to a myriad of opportunities around the world and it has given me the confidence and provided me with the drive to pursue them.”
Eckart J. Brödermann, LLM ’83, President of Harvard Club Hamburg e.V.
Vice President of Harvard Scholarship Foundation Germany e.V.
„My time at Harvard was intensive, inspiring and full of energizing meetings with inspiring people. The same is true for my life within the Harvard community worldwide ever since.”
Volker Baas, MPA ’88, President of Harvard Club Rhein-Main e.V.
Treasurer of Harvard Scholarship Foundation Germany e.V.
Armin Schmiedeberg, MPA '90, President of Harvard Club Rhein-Ruhr e.V.
"When you look back there are a few defining moments in life that capture much of the essence of who you are. Harvard was one of them. Without the years in Cambridge I would not be where I am today, I would not enjoy some of my best friendships, and my view on the world in general would not be the same."
Karsten Zimmermann, MPA '90, President of Harvard Club Muenchen e.V.
"Especially in times of great political uncertainty it remains very important that young people develop an international perspective on the world. We, at the Harvard Scholarship Foundation Germany e.V., aim to encourage this perspective and to strengthen the transatlantic relationship."

Christine I. Wallich, HBS '97
“Harvard transformed me as thinker, practitioner, and as a person. Harvard gave me superb academic training, and exposure to a great faculty and the ability to develop close life-long friendships with fellow classmates. It instilled in me a life-long love of learning and a dedication to pursuing humanitarian service.”
„At Harvard I was surrounded by amazing, smart, experienced executives from 50 different countries. I loved hearing different viewpoints in an atmosphere of openness and healthy debate. I felt Harvard made me a better, more well-rounded person and leader.”
"When I arrived at Harvard in the summer of 2007 one of the first things I noticed was the carved inscription in the stone arch above the gate leading into the yard: "Enter to grow in wisdom." On the other side of the gate, those leaving read the message: "Depart to serve better thy country and thy kind." This sums up the Harvard experience for me. It's never only about learning and understanding, but also about giving back to society and helping others. Establishing the Harvard Scholarship Foundation Germany makes good on that commitment: We want to make sure students with limited financial means also have the opportunity to pass through the Harvard yard gates."
