Munich Fellowship

The Graduate School holds an annual competition for the Munich Exchange Fellowship for graduate students. The fellowship supports the awardee to study one year in Munich. WSU graduate students who are awarded a fellowship by the Graduate School to study at Ludwig-Maximilians Universitat Munich will be provided a tuition waiver from LMU. The WSU Graduate School will provide the WSU student(s) with a cost-of-living allowance to assist them with day-to-day expenses during their studies in Munich. Expenses not covered by the tuition waiver and cost-of-living allowance will be the responsibility of the fellow. Independent travel arrangements should be made. Travel expenses are not included in the fellowship.
