Participating Schools

The Hertz Foundation has a standard agreement in place with over forty top-rated graduate schools to pay Fellows’ stipends, tuition, and other costs. These schools are listed below.

You may apply to another school in the United States not yet party to that agreement without prejudice. If you are selected as a Fellow, we will negotiate with that school in a timely manner concerning its acceptance of that agreement. You are also free to change to another participating school at that time or at a later date.
