German Academic Exchange Service Fellowships (DAAD)

Application deadline:   October 12, 2016 (priority UW campus deadline) or October 31, 2016 (non-priority UW campus deadline and national deadline)

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is a publicly-funded independent organization of higher education institutions in Germany. Research grants are awarded to highly qualified candidates who have completed a master’s degree or diploma, to those who have already completed a Ph.D., or to those wishing to earn a doctoral degree in Germany.

Those who have received an undergraduate degree of any discipline may apply for the DAAD Study Scholarship for a full master’s degree program at a German university, or for study at a German university as part of a post-graduate or master’s degree program completed in the home country.

Many study programs and research opportunities funded by DAAD do not require proficiency in the German language; applicants should indicate interest in developing proficiency in the language before and during time overseas.

Eligible applicants are current UW graduate students or postdocs within two years of Ph.D. completion. Both U.S. citizens and international students are eligible to apply for DAAD awards; citizenship status may affect the types of awards for which students are eligible.

Current graduate students should apply through the University of Washington.
