The DAAD (Deutsche Akademische Austauschdienst) is an association of German universities and student bodies. It supports over 100 programs for students, graduates and academic staff from Germany planning a short-term study abroad.
The short-term and individual scholarships, group programs, study trips and stud placements are financed annually. Exchange programs and guest lecturers from foreign universities are supported as well by the DAAD. In order to make the process of finding a fitting scholarship more accessible for students, the DAAD has launched a new scholarship databank which can be found here.
In addition, FAQs about the scholarship documents can now be accessed via this link.
Please apply directly at the DAAD. Please note that some applications must be submitted far in advance to the DAAD. All deadlines can be found in the scholarship database.
