DAAD and Ministry of Foreign Affairs scholarships

Deadline: varies depending on funding institution

The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs has bilateral agreements with many countries for DAAD scholarships or "government scholarships". These DAAD scholarships may be of interest for candidates from countries which are not officially considered developing countries, such as the CIS and Europe. Typically, applicants should aim to apply simultaneously for scholarships and for the doctoral program. The University of Bonn may issue a conditional letter of acceptance to students who require a confirmation from the university in order to grant the scholarship.

Tip: Conditional letters of acceptance can take up to three months to process, so be sure to apply well in advance!

Please ask the German embassy in your country for details and the deadline for applications.
