The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is searching for the leaders of tomorrow – from Brazil, China, India, Russia, and the USA. The German Chancellor Fellowship offers you an opportunity to take the next career step in Germany – irrespective of your field of work. In order to apply, develop your own project idea and find the host of your choice to mentor you. Once your host has confirmed, you can apply for a fellowship. During one-year stays, scholars are also given the opportunity to gain an insight into the social, cultural, economic and political situation in Germany. The scholarship offers a monthly fellowship of €2,150, €2,450 or €2,750, depending on your qualifications as well as additional financial support for items such as family members accompanying you, travel expenses or a German language course. 

The Foundation grants up to 50 German Chancellor Fellowships annually – up to ten for each country.

The closing date for applications has elapsed. Unfortunately, it is not currently possible to apply for this programme. The next application round is scheduled to begin on 15 March 2020. If you register for the next application round now, we will send you an email informing you when the next application round opens.
