The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is searching for the leaders of tomorrow – from Brazil, China, India, Russia, and the US. The German Chancellor Fellowship allows recent graduates to spend 1 year carrying out a project in Germany in any field, as long as the project creates a positive social impact. German proficiency is not needed, although German language courses are provided along with a study tour and other benefits. Students from fields such as politics, business, media, administration, society or culture with demonstrable initial leadership experience are encouraged to apply.
Amount: The fellowship grant amounts to 2,000 EUR, 2,300 EUR or 2,600 EUR per month, depending on the applicant’s qualifications and professional experience. In addition, a mobility allowance and a contribution to health and liability insurance are paid.
Citizenship: Brazilian, Chinese, Indian, South African, or American citizenship
