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.

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.

"EY is a global organisation which for many years supports the BCCG. In times where less and less British pupils and students focus on learning German, it is furthermore my particular personal desire to support not only the BCCG (as a member of the regional NRW Committee), but also the BCCG Foundation as a member of the Board of Trustees in its efforts to foster a vivid exchange of German-British students. Despite a very close relationship between our countries, I believe that it is vital to continuously support younger generations in the multicultural exchange."

"We support the BCCG Foundation as BP understands itself as a corporate citizen in all countries in which it conducts its business and because we find the aim of the Foundation worthy of support. The issue of education and mentoring of students play a central role in the support mechanisms that BP undertakes as a Corporate Citizen."
