|Aug-Oct 2023 (annual)
The DAAD is committed to promoting the training of specialists from developing and newly industrialized countries through its postgraduate study programs. These programs aim to produce well-trained local experts who can effectively contribute to the sustainable development of their countries. By connecting these experts with international partners, the DAAD believes that they can play a vital role in securing a better future for all, with reduced poverty, improved education, and better healthcare.
Through the DAAD scholarships, foreign graduates from developing and newly industrialized countries can pursue postgraduate or Master’s degrees at state or state-recognized German universities. Applicants must have at least two years of professional experience and come from any discipline. In exceptional cases, the scholarship can also fund a doctoral degree. This opportunity allows recipients to obtain a university qualification (Master’s/Ph.D.) in Germany, which will equip them with the knowledge and skills to make significant contributions to their home country’s development.
