DAAD Scholarship Programs (Germany)

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers undergraduate scholarships to highly qualified undergraduate students from around the world for study abroad, university language courses, senior thesis research and/or internships in the Federal Republic of Germany.  These include scholarships for a semester or a year abroad (for between four and ten months), either as part of an organized study abroad program, or as part of an individual, student-designed study abroad semester or year. Scholarships are competitive and are selected by an independent committee on the basis of an outstanding academic record and a convincing and feasible project proposal or statement of purpose. Applicants are expected to demonstrate an interest in contemporary German and European affairs and to explain the significance of their project in Germany to their future studies, research or professional goals.
