The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is a publicly-funded independent organization of higher education institutions in Germany. Each year DAAD provides information and financial support to more than 120,000 highly-qualified students and faculty for international research and study:
- Research grants are awarded to 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.
Visit the DAAD website for a full list of funded programs. Many study programs and research opportunities funded by DAAD do not require proficiency in the German language.
- 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
View the DAAD FAQs for more information about eligibility.
Current graduate students should apply through the University of Washington. Both research and study applicants of all disciplines should find the appropriate program for which to apply through DAAD’s scholarship database. The program’s profile will indicate all required application materials.
