German Chancellor Fellowship Program

Modified: July 7, 2016

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s German Chancellor Fellowship Program is targeted at university graduates from the United States, the Russian Federation, the People’s Republic of China, Brazil, and India who have an international outlook and initial leadership experience. It addresses prospective decision-makers, multipliers and thought leaders from a broad range of professional fields such as politics, public administration and business as well as society and culture.

The fellowships give participants the opportunity to spend a year in Germany networking with other prospective leaders from abroad, who are also sponsored by the Humboldt Foundation, and to explore new solutions to the global issues of current times.

During their stay in Germany, the German Chancellor Fellows usually pursue research-based, self-developed projects in the areas mentioned above at host institutions. They are supervised by hosts in Germany who they select themselves and who have the necessary level of expertise to mentor the respective research topics. The projects should not only be of social significance, but should also have a long-term, publicly-visible impact. They should also be conducive to advancing fellows’ career development. During their stay in Germany, fellows will be able to expand their specialist knowledge and gain new international experience whilst enhancing their intercultural skills and thus enabling them to develop into successful leaders.

For more information and details on how to apply, visit their website. Contact Stephen Hill, Office of Fellowships, with any questions.
