Here you can find information on various kinds of DAAD funding for students, graduates and postdocs as well as on funding offered by other selected organisations.
Funding is basically reserved for projects that are related to the promotion areas of the Foundation and have a clear connection to the German research system. This connection can be established either at a personal level through German scientists working on the project, at an institutional level through non-German scientists being affiliated to German research institutes or through studies on topics related thematically to German research interests.
Stipend holders receive a monthly sponsorship of EUR 1,800, independent of age. To cover material and travel expenses, i.e. for books or trips to other work groups which are directly related to the research work, candidates may be granted an allowance of EUR 200 per month. In addition, contributions to the stipendee's travel to the research location are paid and, if necessary, a child allowance.
Applications are welcome in the following funding areas:
- history, languages and culture
- the interdisciplinary field of 'Image–Sound–Language'
- the state, the economy and society
- medicine and natural sciences
