AGA-Goethe Fellowship

Where business, academia and culture meet.

The AGA-Goethe Fellowship is an annual award which supports young Australians undertake a research project in Germany and report on their work on returning to Australia.  Its aim is to foster closer relationships between Australia and Germany and assist with the development of future leaders in our community.

The Fellowship is made available by the Australian German Association with the Goethe-Institut providing one 8-week language course at a Goethe-Institut.  The Fellowship also includes a grant of A$6,000 towards a study tour in Germany (typically at least 4 weeks), visiting companies/institutions in the special interest field of the Awardee. Reimbursement of a return economy airfare from Australia to Germany is also included.

There have been over 27 previous winners of the Fellowship. The Fellowship is launched in Q1 each year, with the successful candidate undertaking their research project by Q4 of the same year.

The Fellowship is subject to specific selection criteria and rules which apply to the successful candidate.
