Alexander von Humboldt Foundation: German Chancellor Fellowship

Programme Description

The fellowship is targeted toward higher-education graduates of all disciplines in the United States, the People's Republic of China, Brazil, India and South Africa who have an international outlook and initial leadership experience. It is aimed at promoting research-based, independently developed projects at host institutions in Germany to be selected by the candidate. Not only should the projects be of social relevance, they should also have a long-term, publicly visible impact. After the conclusion of the programme the fellows act as intermediaries between their home countries and Germany, and remain a part of the world-wide Humboldt network.

The Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany is the patron of the programme, which is funded by the Federal Foreign Office. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grants every year up to 50 Chancellor Fellowships which are worth a maximum funding of 2,600 EUR per month; up to 10 fellowships are awarded to prospective leaders from each of the 5 above-mentioned countries. The fellowship entails a preparatory intensive language course in Germany, a half-time conference as well as joint events and networking activities with other fellows.

Target Group

The programme is designed exclusively for candidates from the United States, the People's Republic of China, Brazil, India and South Africa: emerging thought and opinion leaders from a wide range of professional fields, such as politics, public administration and business, media as well as society and culture.
