Reciprocity and exchange
The Baden-Wuerttemberg Stiftung
Nowadays, international experience, language skills and understanding of other cultures are more important for school, studies and career than ever before. The Baden-Württemberg-Stipendium enables qualified young people to take part in a placement abroad and so to broaden their personal horizons. Because for every scholarship holder from Baden-Württemberg, a scholarship holder from abroad comes to the south-west of Germany. The principles of reciprocity and exchange guide this scholarship at it's core.About the Baden-Wuerttemberg Stiftung
