Determination to Graduation

Fair starting conditions for young people – independent of their background and social status. The Robert Bosch Stiftung and Joachim Herz Foundation help make this a reality with their fellowship program "grips gewinnt." Every year, 110 new students are supported on their journey to finishing their high school diploma or equivalent.

A total of 110 new students have been inducted into the "grips gewinnt" program in Berlin. They will receive monthly financial support plus various educational offers and personal consulting on school and educational issues on their path to graduation.

With 'grips gewinnt,’ we are committed to establishing fair starting conditions for young people – independent of their background and social status. In doing so, we help further develop their strengths and allow them to grow into confident young people," says Dr. Dagmar Wolf, Head of Educational Activities at the Robert Bosch Stiftung. Youth with good school grades and who are socially committed but unable to fully realize their potential due to financial, social, or cultural reasons are eligible for support. Since 2011, the Joachim Herz Foundation and the Robert Bosch Stiftung have been supporting students from the eighth grade and up on their way to graduating high school.
