The University of Bonn, Germany, will offer one academic year award and several short-term awards to UW–Madison advanced graduate students who wish to pursue independent research under the guidance of a senior faculty member. Although there is no general minimum language skills requirement, German skills should be commensurate with the needs of the project.

About the University of Bonn: This research university is considered one of Europe’s top institutes of higher education. Traditionally, UW–Madison applicants have come primarily from the humanities and social sciences, but Bonn is recognized as a leader in mathematics, physics, chemistry, pharmaceutical research, and life- and neurosciences, with strengths also in an international computer sciences program.

Applicants should be enrolled in a doctoral program at UW–Madison. Preference will be given to dissertators; however, graduate students who have not yet passed preliminary examinations for the Ph.D. will be considered. The awards are not tenable for use after a terminal Master’s Degree. For more information on the competition, go to the Graduate Fellowship Bonn University page on this site.
