Candidates have to be either nominated by a German university or a renowned research institution or apply directly. They should demonstrate social engagement in addition to academic expertise. A DAAD-organized selection committee will evaluate applications and conduct personal interviews. Each year, 10 to 20 new fellows are selected. All applicants need to be enrolled in a German MA or PhD program at the time of application/interview.
Due to a restructuring of AGGN, currently no new members are admitted. There will be no call for membership this year.
