By establishing the H. J. Klein Foundation Dr. Heinrich J. Klein (former chairman of the board of the special glass manufacturer SCHOTT AG, Mainz) and his wife Dr. Liesel Klein have provided a basis for a better understanding of different countries and their cultures. In 1993 the couple brought the private funds for the international education of students 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 administrating the international selection process for the foundation.
