In the second stage, from these recommendations a Selection Committee will invite approximately 40 applicants to participate at the AFGG. It is clarified that nominations do not guarantee acceptance.

Names and addresses of the ZEIT-Stiftung's or the Observer Research Foundation’s contact persons will not be communicated to potential applicants directly. Our nominators are from diverse fields; Heads and Ministers of State, Members of Parliament, CEOs of transnational companies, Professors (Law, Political Science, Humanities) and NGOs. Additionally, alumni of the ZEIT-Stiftung’s governance programs may nominate candidates.
