About FellowshipAcademic Fields & DisciplinesApplication DeadlineFellowship Contact

The foundation awards fellowships to prospective decision-makers, multiplier and thought leaders from a broad range of professional fields such as politics, public administration and business as well as society and culture. Successful candidates have come from social and policy sciences, government, law, journalism, communications, management, finance, economics, architecture, graphic and performing arts, humanities, public service, and environmental affairs.

Fellows 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.
