The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) was founded in 1925 to honour the political legacy of Germanys first democratically elected president,Friedrich Ebert

Ebert, a social democrat, proposed the establishment of a political foundation in response to his own experience: His rise from humble beginnings as an artisan to the highest political office bearer in his country had at times been painful and full of confrontation. His idea was that the foundation should aim:

TO FURTHER political and social education of individuals from all walks of life in the spirit of democracy and pluralism,
TO FACILITATE the access of gifted young people to university education and research through scholarships and
TO CONTRIBUTE to international understanding and cooperation.

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung was banned by the Nazis in 1933 and re-established in 1947. Presently it continues to pursue Ebert’s original goals through various activities.

As a private, cultural non-profit institution, it is committed to the ideas and basic values of social democracy.
