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 seven students in 2019 (including one Anglo-German Club Award Winner) in reaching their goal of attaining academic know-how and general life experience in the other country.

Many thanks to our long standing supporter Anglo-German Club, Hamburg and the BCCG member Lloyd's Versicherer London who once again supported the BCCG Foundation with a special contribution in 2019. We are very grateful for this generosity of our supporters as well as for all large and small donations we received.

Hereafter please find the BCCG Foundation Award winners of the academic year 2019/2020 reporting about their experiences abroad: 

Congratulations on your election! 
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. 

For further details and current news about the BCCG Foundation, please view page 34 to 40 of the BCCG Yearbook 2020/21 (pls. click).

Applicants must have completed a bachelor degree. They are eligible to apply for an award if they are undertaking full time Master courses in their home country, intending to take at least one semester (or more) abroad. Only applications with reference to the study of law, economic sciences and engineering will be accepted. Preferential assessment is given to students who intend to study abroad for the first time. Limiting age is 26 years, in exceptional cases until 30 years.

Please note: As the BCCG Foundation is in a process of reorganisation there will be no awards remitted for the upcoming academic year 2020/2021 (winter/spring, spring/summer term).
