New application round for a German Chancellor Fellowship now open

Young professionals from Brazil, China, India, Russia and the USA have until 15 September to compete with a project of their own.

The German Chancellor Fellowship for prospective leaders offers up to 50 talented young professionals from Brazil, China, India, Russia and the USA an opportunity to spend a year in Germany which they can use to advance their professional training and conduct together with their German host a project they have developed themselves. Online applications for the new round are now being accepted.

This fellowship targets up-and-coming professionals, decision-makers and thought leaders with an academic degree who will network in Germany with other prospective leaders from abroad and return to their respective country as mediators between these cultures. Applicants can come from a wide range of fields such as politics, business, media, public administration, society and culture. They each select a suitable host for their stay in Germany, such as an organisation, company, the public administration, a museum or the media.

The Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany is the patron of the German Chancellor Fellowship programme which is funded by the Federal Foreign Office. The deadline for applications is 15 September 2015.
