Hamburg Foundation Scholarship for the Politically Persecuted

Guidelines of assistance

Scholarships are given based on recommendations by relevant organizations and individuals. Occasionally, former guests of the foundation, who are well aware of what is going on in their own country, also nominate people in need of protection.


According to the Hamburg Foundation, "Democracy feeds off free press, free arts, free literature, and photography." Because of this, and the group's proximity to individuals affected by the Holocaust, the group is committed to human rights and free speech. Grants are provided to those recommended by organizations of high status.
