We have a number of programs for international students planning to study at Harvard graduate and professional schools. Please review the information below and the corresponding links to learn more about these funding opportunities.


Charles W. Holtzer Fellowships

The Charles W. Holtzer Fellowship is awarded each year to a student of German birth for study in any graduate or professional school of Harvard University. Interested students cannot apply directly for the Holtzer Fellowship, but must first successfully apply for one of the following DAAD scholarships and receive admission to a corresponding degree program at Harvard in order to be considered.

Eligible DAAD programs:
Masterstudium im Ausland
Stipendien für Studierende im Fachbereich Architektur
Stipendien für Studierende im Fachbereich Bildende Kunst/Design/Film
Stipendien für Studierende im Fachbereich Darstellende Kunst
Stipendien für Studierende im Fachbereich Musik

After the completion of the DAAD selection process, a number of DAAD grantees will be nominated for the Holtzer award based on internal criteria. The decision on the award of the Holtzer Fellowship lies with Harvard University. Documentary proof of German birth and education is required. This scholarship is not renewable.
