The Friedrich Ebert Foundation (German: Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung; Abbreviation: FES) is a German political foundation associated with the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), yet independent of it.

Established in 1925 as the political legacy of Friedrich Ebert, Germany’s first Democratically elected President, it is the largest and oldest of the German party-associated foundations. It is headquartered in Bonn and Berlin, and has offices and projects in over 100 countries. It is Germany’s oldest organisation to promote democracy, political education, and promote students of outstanding intellectual abilities and personality.

The aim of the international activities of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is to promote democracy and development, to contribute to peace and security, to work to make globalization socially equitable, and to support the continued development of the European Union.

Through its projects in over 100 countries, the FES supports building and strengthening civil society and public institutions. Central to its work are the promotion of democracy
and social justice, economic and social development, strong and free trade unions, and the advocacy of human rights and gender equality.

2700 graduate, undergraduate, and PhD students supported with financial assistance and programs, more than 250 of whom come from abroad.
