How to become a fellow

Candidates have to be either nominated by a German university or a renowned research institution or apply directly. They should demonstrate social engagement in addition to academic expertise. A DAAD-organized selection committee will evaluate applications and conduct personal interviews. Each year, 10 to 20 new fellows are selected. All applicants need to be enrolled in a German MA or PhD program at the time of application/interview.

The nomination process takes place once a year, with application deadline in autumn and selection process in January.

Due to a restructuring of AGGN, there will be no call for applications end of 2017. Further information will be posted here as soon as they are available.
