The Gilman-DAAD Germany Scholarships program is a partnership between the U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A Gilman Scholarship Program and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). This scholarship supports a wider effort between the United States and Germany to increase and diversify international student mobility among German and American higher education institutions.

DAAD Germany will provide 40 additional scholarships for U.S. undergraduate students per year to study and/or intern for academic credit in Germany through the Gilman Program. The award allows students from accredited U.S. higher education institutions to strengthen their skills and expand their educational experiences while living and learning in Germany.

The Gilman Program is a program of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) with funding provided by the U.S. government and is supported in its implementation by the Institute of International Education (IIE). The Gilman-DAAD Germany Scholarships are supported by the Transatlantic Program of the Federal Republic of Germany  with funds from the European Recovery Program (ERP) of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK).
