34th Anniversary of the BCCG Foundation (Stiftung)
Since 1983 the Foundation, created by the British Chamber of Commerce in Germany, offers scholarships to British and German students who plan to study in the other's country. It is managed independently of BCCG.
As an example, through generous donations by business and many individuals, the Foundation was able to assist altogether nine students in 2016 (including one Anglo-German Club Award Winner) in reaching their goal of attaining academic know-how and general life experience in the other country.
The particular, long lasting contribution by British Airways also calls for special mention in their providing award winners with free flights to enable an easier take-off in life. Many thanks to the BCCG member Lloyd's Versicherer London who has supported the BCCG Foundation with a special contribution in 2016. We are very grateful for this generosity of our supporters.
Through this exchange of talented, ambitious, young students, the Foundation makes a significant contribution for the British Chamber of Commerce in Germany, which sets out to intensify the already very intensive business and cultural activities between the United Kingdom and Germany.
Students' reports written on completion of their stay abroad, repeatedly emphasize that in addition to the valuable academic know-how acquired, new friendships and social contacts play an extremely important role in what at first seems a very foreign environment.
Hereafter please find the BCCG Foundation Award winners of the academic year 2016/2017 with their reports about their stay abroad (pls. click on names):

"The UK and Germany are the two biggest countries in terms of employment for Rolls-Royce. Many of our people, including myself, have spent time in both locations in their careers. We therefore fully support young talent who wish to study in both countries as this supports the integrated work environment in Rolls-Royce. Well-educated experts are important for the success of our company and the aerospace industry. Through integration into our specialised departments, students can also gain invaluable practical experience and we can identify potential candidates for future employment."
