About us

The German-Ethiopian Foundation [DeutschÄthiopischeStiftung] is an incorporated foundation under civil law, which is committed to the principles of good foundation practice.

Founded in 1999 by Siegbert Uhlig, it supports young, gifted individuals in science and industry from Ethiopia and Europe, who are devoted to the further development of the Horn of Africa. The Foundation’s focus lies on all dramatic changes in Africa, not primarily on disaster relief and the safeguarding of basic needs, but the Foundation aims at the spiritual, cultural and social development of the region.

We award stipends and study grants to students and doctoral candidates from Africa and Germany in science and industry; we are planning in cooperation with other organizations and individuals the establishment of a Junior Foundation Professorship for Contemporary Issues of Northeast Africa; we encourage research projects on African culture and we promote the rescue of East African cultural heritage.
