UW–Madison Graduate Student Fellowship Program at University of Bonn, Germany: The University of Bonn, Germany, will offer one academic year award and several short-term awards to UW–Madison advanced graduate students (regardless of citizenship) 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. Full description is here, Award offers are contingent on confirmation of funding for the program by the German government.

Academic year award: The academic year award provides a maintenance allowance of approximately 10,000 Euro for the academic year for a PhD student; 7,500 Euro for a MA student. This award runs from October 2015 through July 2016.

Short term awards: There are several short term awards available (duration could be one month or up to five, depending on the needs of the project). Dissertators are preferred; however, graduate students who have not yet passed preliminary examinations for the Ph.D. will be considered. The awards provide a maintenance allowance of approximately 1000 Euro per month for a PhD level candidate, or 750 Euro per month for an MA level candidate. Short term awards cannot begin before January 2016; recipients can come anytime between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2016.
About the University of Bonn: This research university is considered one of Europe’s top institutes of higher education. Many 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. We welcome applications from these areas, too.
