The European Union currently faces challenges that demand innovative governance concepts and a new quality of leadership. The Hertie School recognizes the role of young leaders in public policy responding to these challenges. We have therefore introduced the new Future of Europe stipend, aimed at young European Union professionals.
The Master of Public Policy prepares future leaders to find innovative policy solutions in the realm of economic cooperation, reform of the welfare state, and new modes of democratic governance.
If you want to take the lead in the interface of the public, private, and civil society sectors, the MPP presents a unique opportunity to expand your knowledge, skills and competences.
The stipend covers the full tuition costs (27.000 EUR) for the two-year MPP program.
The School particularly encourages students and young professionals from Eastern and Southern member states of the EU to apply for the stipend.
The application requirements are:
- Strong motivation to apply to the MPP program and the Future of Europe stipend.
- Good undergraduate academic qualifications – a Bachelor’s degree (or its international equivalent) is required.
- International experience and social/civic engagement
- Excellent command of the English language
- Professional experience is desirable but not mandatory
You can apply for the scholarship online here.
If you meet the criteria and would like to be considered for the stipend, you need only to indicate so in the normal application form. In other words, there is no special application procedure or extra forms to fill if you want to be considered, you just need to make a note that you are interested in your regular application.
