Government officials (civilian and military from throughout the government sector) who would like to participate in a Marshall Center resident program must begin by contacting their ministry or parent organization 120 days before the start of the program they wish to attend.  Ministries or parent organizations may then nominate participants for Marshall Center programs through the Marshall Center liaison at the United States Embassy or German Embassy in their countries. Nominations should reach the Marshall Center Registrar's office 60 days before the course begins.

The Marshall Center cannot accept direct nominations for funded participants; nominations for all programs must come to the Marshall Center through the appropriate ministry and the U.S. or German embassy in the nominee's country. However, the Registrar's office can help applicants initiate the process. For assistance, applicants can send a request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  The request should include an applicant's name, position title, rank, address, telephone number and e-mail address. The Registrar's office will then forward the application to the appropriate U.S. Embassy representative for consideration and further coordination with the applicant. The Marshall Center accepts direct nominations for self-paying participants for all resident courses. The Registrar's office can provide information on the admissions process and associated course costs.
