DAAD Grants for Study and Research in Germany


Fellowship Information

Description:

DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) offers programs and funding for undergraduate and graduate students to conduct research in Germany.

Who Should Apply:

The most important criteria for successful applicants are a history of academic excellence and clarity of vision for why they need to spend time in Germany. For most programs applicants need to be currently enrolled as a student and have plans to return to their home institution. The Graduate Scholarship does not have this stipulation and can be used to fund either a temporary stay in Germany or a complete Master’s degree online. Most programs have age limits (younger than 32). Different awards require different language levels (ranging from none to fluent).

Program Duration:

Varies by program; 2 months to multiple years.
