German Chancellor (Humboldt) Fellowship

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s German Chancellor Fellowship Program is targeted at university graduates from Brazil, China, India, Russia, and the USA who have an international outlook and initial leadership experience. The fellowships give them the opportunity to spend a year in Germany networking with other prospective leaders from abroad and working in a sector such as politics, economics, the media, administration, and culture. During their stay in Germany, the German Chancellor Fellows usually pursue research-based, self-developed projects in the areas related to their 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.
