International Opportunity for Prospective Leaders & Young Professionals
The German Chancellor Fellowship provides for a stay of one year in Germany for professional development, study, or research. Germany's Alexander von Humboldt Foundation awards ten German Chancellor Fellowships annually to young professionals in the private, public, not-for-profit, cultural and academic sectors who are citizens of the United States. The program, which also includes fellowships for citizens of the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China, sponsors individuals who demonstrate the potential to strengthen ties between Germany and their own country through their profession or studies. Prior knowledge of German is not a prerequisite. Fellows are provided with intensive language training prior to and during the fellowship.
The program begins September 1 and lasts twelve months. It is preceded by four months of intensive language classes in Germany. Candidates must have received their bachelor's degree within the past twelve years.
Application deadline for U.S. applicants: October 15 (annually)
