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, http://fellowships.international.wisc.edu/graduate-fellowship-university-of-bonn-germany/. 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. http://www3.uni-bonn.de/the-university
