A brief look back at history shows that DAAD has a long tradition of uniting people and academia. Founded in Heidelberg in 1925 on the initiative of a single student, DAAD has since become one of the most important funding organisations in the world for the international exchange of students and researchers. On the following pages, we invite you to learn more about our funding programs and the aims of our activities.
