Germany boasts an excellent higher education system as well as a vital research ecosystem and infrastructure that offers an ideal environment for international students and researchers. Fulbright Germany's study and research program facilitates access to research and studies for two academic semesters at a German university or relevant non-university institutions, such as research labs or archives. During the 10-month grant period (usually starting in mid-September) grantees can broaden their professional, scientific, and artistic skills.

Therefore, applicants should consider refreshing their German language skills during the months before arriving in Germany, and they should consider taking additional courses offered at their potential German host institutions.

Applicants are responsible for arranging their own affiliation with higher education or research institutions in Germany.

\n

Before beginning the application process, candidates should take time to research the best possible place to pursue research or to study, taking into consideration the faculty, achievements, publications, and research of the relevant research institute or university department, as well as their locations.

\n

All applicants (including degree-seeking applicants) are strongly encouraged to solicit a meaningful letter of invitation/support from their host institution and include it in their Fulbright application. The letter should make clear reference to the applicant's project, explain the institution's motivation for hosting the applicant, confirm the feasibility of the project, and outline the cooperation and support which the host institution will offer to help achieve the applicant's goals. This invitation letter is a prerequisite for the matriculation as a visting/non-degree-seeking student at a German university.

\n

Candidates who wish to study at a German university may pursue two options:

\n
    \n
  1. Enrollment as a visiting/non-degree student with all benefits for matriculated students, such as a transportation pass. Please check whether the non-degree status is available at your potential host university.
  2. \n
  3. Seek admission as a degree student in a one- or two-year master's program. Fulbright Germany welcomes such applications even though the funding can be offered only for the first year and does not cover any tuition fees.
  4. \n
\n

Candidates are recommended to consult with the international offices of their intended host institutions regarding matriculation requirements for Fulbright grantees. In addition to matriculation, applicants are expected to fulfill the enrollment requirements of their respective study programs.  

\n

Candidates who wish to conduct research at a German institution have the following option:

\n

Candidates may matriculate with their host university or host institute (Max-Planck, Leibniz, Helmholtz Zentrum etc.) as research fellows and are not formally enrolled as a visiting/non-degree seeking student. However, Fulbright Germany encourages them to attend regular university courses so as to enhance their academic experiences in Germany. When selecting their preferred research institution, applicants should note that close proximity between the research institution and university is imperative for the successful enrollment in university courses.

German Higher Education System: Information Update

\n

The public higher education institutions in the German federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg have introduced tuition fees in the amount of Euro 1,500 per academic semester for international students coming from countries outside the European Union. 

\n

This regulation also affects U.S. students who wish to pursue study and research at a university in Baden-Wuerttemberg – if the study and research activities take place outside an official partnership program between the student's U.S. home university and the host university in Baden-Wuerttemberg.

\n

Unfortunately, Fulbright students cannot avoid this regulation by not enrolling in the host university. Applicants interested in studying and/or performing research at a university in Baden-Wuerttemberg (or any other German university) must enroll in the intended host university in order to qualify for the required student residence permit. In the case of Baden-Wuerttemberg, they will then be charged tuition of Euro 1,500 per academic semester. Fulbright Germany will not be able to cover these fees.

\n

The universities in Baden-Wuerttemberg can grant exceptions of this regulation only for those students who can prove to them that their enrollment in the U.S. home university continues throughout the Fulbright scholarship period, in which case students must submit such proof in writing, issued by their U.S. home university.

All designated grantees (including research fellows and arts grantees) must be fully matriculated at their host institution, be it a research institute (Max-Planck, Leibniz, etc.) or one of the 400 accredited German academic institutions. Fulbright Germany cannot accept \"guest\" status. Matriculation at a research institute provides the candidates with office and lab space, computer facilities, internet connection, library access, and must help to provide them with a residency permit. The matriculation at a university facilitates access to university resources, public transportation passes, health insurance, and most important the residence permit.  

\n

Exception: Fulbright Germany will exempt research fellows from the requirement of university matriculation if their host institution is located too far from a university. In that case, the research institute must provide documentation of affiliated researcher/guest status in order for the grantee to apply and receive the required residence permit for Germany.

\n

Master's Programs: In Germany, master's degrees typically require a bachelor's in the same or a closely related field. Applicants who wish to enroll in a German master's program are advised to research the admission requirements of their preferred program to make sure they are eligible for admission and fulfill all necessary application requirements.  Application deadlines for master’s programs vary and may close early. Applicants may need to submit their master's program application before knowing if they will receive a Fulbright grant. If applicants cannot confirm an official admission by the start of the grant, they risk losing the Fulbright grant. 

"},{"name":"Music and Fine Arts Affiliations","value":"

Admission procedures at German institutions of music and the arts vary. Universities of music and the arts may require auditions and/or entrance examinations, along with submission of a portfolio. Fulbright Germany may thus require (and co-sponsor) candidates to travel to Germany for auditions which take place as early as June 2022. To increase their chances for admission, applicants are strongly encouraged to establish contact with German music and art professors before applying for a grant, and to solicit a compelling invitation letter.

\n

Please note that Fulbright Germany does not accept music and art students who wish to study with private teachers or in private schools.

\n

Arts candidates who wish to pursue independent research or complete a creative project must also seek an affiliation with a university in order to be fully matriculated.

The Fulbright English Teaching Assistant program in Germany helps to improve the teaching of the English language and American studies at all types of German schools and aims to strengthen educational and cultural relationships between the United States and Germany. English Teaching Assistants (ETAs) usually cooperate closely with a German teacher of English and take over certain responsibilities in the classroom, especially with regard to projects on the U.S. ETAs also are expected to engage closely with their surrounding community.

In this program Fulbright Germany cooperates with the Pädagogischer Austauschdienst in Bonn (PAD) and the 16 Bundesländer in Germany. For most grantees, the stipend to cover living costs will be provided by the respective host-Bundesland. Fulbright Germany provides the cost-of-living stipend in specific cases. The ETA program in Germany offers a unique opportunity for ETAs to advance their teaching skills and immerse themselves in the educational and cultural environments in Germany.
