Study to be taken in : Germany
Field of Study
There is no specific subject-preference. However, the selection board has often given preference to courses and subjects that they felt to be of significance for the home country of the applicant. This holds true especially for subjects of PhD-theses. There is therefore a certain leaning towards “development oriented” studies – this does however not mean that other fields (cultural, philosophic, linguistic, etc.) can not be of significance for a country and are ruled out.
Students from developing countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America Middle East can apply for these scholarships.
- only students who already have a first degree
- only students who want to go for postgraduate studies (either for a Master-course
for a PhD)
- in rare cases also students who already have a PhD and who would like to come to a German university for a short research period.
Do KAAD-scholars need to know the German language?
All beneficiaries of KAAD-scholarships (except for in-country-scholars) need to know German. This is especially important for scholars whose study programme includes German (some Master programmes are bilingual German/English; some PhD-study programmes include oral exams in German). But even for scholars whose studies are entirely in English, KAAD emphasizes knowledge of the German language.
How to Apply?
The method of application is online. The first request is placed through filling an online questionnaire on the application webpage www.kaad-application.de. In the course of the application process, more documents need to be provided by the applicant and the KAAD-Partner-Committees are involved.
If the pre-selection process has been positive for the applicant, the application is passed on to an independent selection board, which sits twice per year (in March and in September).
