Stiftung Mercator is offering a 13-month program for fellows to work in two to three international organizations, globally active NGOs, non-profit organizations or business enterprises. Fellows select a practical issue on which to focus in their projects; this in turn determines the work placements they choose worldwide. Fellows are 24 highly-committed German-speaking university graduates from all disciplines and young professionals who aspire to positions of responsibility in the world of tomorrow. Eligible applicants must have at least one year of professional experience after leaving school. The deadline is each year in December.
