Highly endowed scholarships for top U.S. universities


Would you like to complete your master's degree or a research stay at one of America's top universities? Then apply for the ERP and McCloy programs. With both programs, the German National Academic Foundation supports study and research stays at top U.S. universities.

The aim of both programs is to strengthen transatlantic relations and to promote and network highly qualified young professionals who wish to work in the public sector.

While the McCloy Program (opens in new tab) supports master's projects at Harvard Kennedy School, the ERP Fellowship Program (opens in new tab) supports one- to two-year study and research projects at top American universities U.S.-wide. Both programs are open to graduate students of all disciplines. In addition to living and travel expenses, the programs can cover tuition costs of nearly $120,000 (McCloy) and up to $50,000 (ERP).

Admission to the programs is also accompanied by admission to the German National Academic Foundation.
