SBW Berlin and international

SBW Berlin supports educational projects all over the world. With our SBW Berlin Scholarship, we contribute to the international advancement and dissemination of education and knowledge.

We award our scholarship to young talents from abroad who have already shown social commitment in their home country. With our scholarship, we enable them to achieve a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Germany (Berlin or Potsdam). In special cases we also fund professional training.

Our scholarship holders then use the knowledge they gain while they study in Germany to support non-profit projects in their home country, often in the education sector.

In addition to our SBW Berlin scholarship, we also support educational projects in Bulgaria, India and Nicaragua.
