There’s still time to apply for the MPP, MIA, MDS and full scholarship programmes ahead of our priority deadline.

Our 1 February priority application deadline is just around the corner. While we accept applications until 1 May, we encourage you to apply by 1 February to increase your chances of receiving financial support from the Hertie School. If you’re reading this and just now considering applying for fall 2024 enrolment, don’t worry – you’ve still got time to put together your best possible application.

The following full scholarships have a deadline of 1 February and require additional application material, usually an essay:

Master of Public Policy:

Master of International Affairs:

Master of Data Science for Public Policy: 

We also partner with external scholarship providers who have extra application processes:

  • COLFUTURO-Hertie School Scholarship: applications for this scholarship must submit both an application to a Hertie School master’s programme, as well as a separate application on COLFUTURO’s website by 29 February 2024 to be considered for the loan-scholarship and full tuition waiver. Applications for COLFUTURO have just opened!

And finally, some tips to help reduce the stress of applications:

  1. We no longer require reference letters as part of the admissions process. If you’d still like to submit one, you still can, but it’s no longer required and will not be a detriment to your application if you choose not to submit one.  
  2. We still have two more admissions office hours scheduled this month. Sign up to meet an admissions rep and ask questions in a group setting.
  3. Join our other online events to connect with current students and find out more about our master’s programmes.

As always, feel free to contact us grad-admissions[at]hertie-school[dot]org if you have any questions at all. We’re here to help you!
