Travel stipends for international alumni to present at Professional Perspectives

Call for applications: Travel stipends for international Hertie School Alumni to present their career path at the Professional Perspectives event series

We are interested in hearing more about the careers of our international alumni. With funding from the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) we are able to provide stipends for two international alumni which will cover the costs for flights, visas, accommodation and a small food allowance for two days. You would be invited to the Hertie School as a speaker for our Professional Perspectives series between March and December 2018. The Professional Perspectives series offers insights into topics relevant to the daily work of practitioners and their institutions in the field of public policy. In addition, students would have the opportunity to learn more about job perspectives in the respective fields.

International Hertie School Alumni (i.e. non-German alumni living outside of Germany) are eligible to attend.
