QuantCo Travel Scholarship

Quantco

Attend the German American Conference 2022 at Harvard with QuantCo!

QuantCo is offering up to five travel scholarships for German university students to attend the GAC. As part of the travel scholarship, QuantCo will cover:

  • Round-trip flights (up to 600)
  • A 4-night hotel stay from October 27, 2022 to October 31, 2022
  • A dinner with QuantCo at a privately booked venue in Boston or Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Requirements

In order to be eligible for the travel scholarship, you must:

  • Be enrolled at a German university, including students currently in an exchange semester at a non-German university. We accept any degree program and any academic year (i.e. freshman to graduate level).
  • Be in the top 5% of your program (or top 5% in Abitur grade for freshmen) as demonstrated by grades/transcripts or scholarships/awards
  • Obtain the proper visa or travel authorization to the US (e.g. ESTA, if applicable). Please see the US State Department’s Travel website for more information.
  • Have or obtain international travel health insurance coverage
  • Cover your own travel to and from the airports
  • Accept that the travel scholarship will be voided if the conference is canceled or held remotely. The void also applies in the event that government travel restrictions are imposed between the US and any affected countries.
  • Agree to inform QuantCo in a timely manner (ideally by October 4, 2022) if you decide not to attend the GAC so that we can award your travel scholarship to a runner-up
  • Give QuantCo consent to store your resume for up to 6 months starting from October 30, 2022 (the last day of the GAC)

Please submit the following to travel-scholarship@quantco.com by August 26, 2022:

About QuantCo and the GAC

The Harvard German American Conference 2022 offers a compelling opportunity for attendees to connect with leaders from both sides of the Atlantic. QuantCo can attest to the GAC’s impact as many of our current and former colleagues have been speakers or organizers. We therefore want to help strengthen and foster more transatlantic relationships by bringing German students to the Conference.
