Hertie School Fellowship

Who is it for?

Stipend holders of one of the German Begabtenförderungswerke (sponsorship organisations) who wish to pursue a degree in public policy or international affairs.

What is it?

Stipend holders of the German Begabtenförderungswerke are guaranteed at least a 25% tuition waiver upon admission to the MPP and MIA programmes. In addition, up to five full tuition waivers are awarded as scholarships. Each of these waivers is worth 32,500 EUR.

If students become stipend holders of the German Begabtenförderungswerke during their first year of studies, the Hertie School Fellowship can only be granted for the second year of studies. 

How to apply

Applicants should upload a copy of their stipend certificate along with the rest of their application documents. If the stipend certificate is not available at the time of your application it must be submitted to the Admissions Team before 1 September 2019 at the latest.

There is no separate deadline for this scholarship. Shortlisted candidates for the full tuition waivers will be contacted on a rolling basis and interviewed by a faculty member of the Hertie School.

“The scholarship from the Hertie School helps me to expand my intellectual boundaries and enables me to further develop my skills as an advocate for students from socially disadvantaged families.”
