The objective of the Heinrich J. Klein Foundation is to sponsor science and international exchange by granting scholarships to people during their training and further education

Support is granted to people in training and further education for temporary scientific stays abroad like the attendance of a summer school, seminar or the direct work or cooperation on a scientific project. The Board of Trustees selects the applicants and defines the amount of funding the person receives (the decision will  be made in June/July each year).

Connection to SCHOTT

SCHOTT is a leading international technology group in the fields of special glass and glass ceramics.

By establishing the H. J. K. Foundation Dr. Heinrich J. Klein, a former Board Member of SCHOTT and his wife Dr. Liesel Klein brought the foundation into being by contributing a considerable sum from their private funds. In 1993 the couple brought the private funds for the international education of people in training and further education worldwide. Since then the foundation has financially supported almost 50 scholarship recipients in Germany and abroad. The Human Resources department at SCHOTT's headquarters in Mainz, Germany is handling the whole administration and the international selection process for the foundation as well as the application process.
