International Students & Scholars
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS & SCHOLARS IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA:
The DAAD New York office and the scholarships listed on www.daad.org serve the academic communities of Canada and the United States only. In most cases international students and scholars at North America universities are eligible for DAAD New York programs if they meet all of the following conditions:

a) have already entered North America (Canada or the United States) and have been here for at least two years
b) have full-time affiliation with a US or Canadian university, e.g. enrollment in a degree program, post-doc research position, employed as faculty or administrator.
b) are seeking to go to Germany for academic purposes.

There are a few scholarships restricted to citizens only, so be sure to read the eligibility requirements carefully. International students in North America on a temporary basis should contact the DAAD office for the country of their home university (the one from which you will receive a degree) or the country of their citizenship.

STUDENTS AND SCHOLARS OF OTHER COUNTRIES:
Please Note: We do NOT provide scholarships for study in the United States or Canada.

If you wish to study etc in Germany and have no connection to North America, there are other DAAD offices to assist you:
DAAD Worldwide

CANADIAN AND US CITIZENS IN OTHER COUNTRIES:
Regional divisions for DAAD programs are usually based on the country in which a potential applicant is enrolled at university. However, if the DAAD office serving the country in which you are studying is unable to accommodate your interest in a DAAD program, please email us to inquire about your eligibility.

GERMAN CITIZENS
If you are a German citizen and were educated in Germany, in order to qualify for DAAD New York funding, you must have lived in Canada or the US for at least six consecutive years during your current stay and prove that your "Lebensmittelpunkt" is in North America (e.g. permanent residency status), including assurance that you will return to North America at the conclusion of your grant period.

If you are a dual national (Canada/US + Germany), did all or most of your education in the United States or Canada, and graduated with a US/Canadian high school diploma, you are eligible for DAAD New York programs.

If you are a citizen of Germany and would like to find out more about studying in the US or Canada, including DAAD scholarships available to you, please visit the website of DAAD Bonn.
