UCSD Internal Deadline: DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service)

FOR:  graduate (including master’s) and undergraduate students who may be interested in pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree, conducting research, or completing an arts project in Germany.

DAAD (the German Academic Exchange Service) offers various grants and scholarships to study, conduct research, or work on an arts project in Germany.  For many of these, such as the RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering) program, students can apply directly on their own.

However, there are several kinds of grants for which students must apply through UCSD:

Study Scholarships provide highly qualified individuals with an opportunity to do independent study in Germany or to complete a full Master’s degree program at a German university.”

Research grants are awarded primarily to highly qualified PhD candidates who are early in their academic/professional careers or to individuals wishing to earn a doctoral degree in Germany. Funding may also be granted to recent PhDs who would like to conduct research. “

Finally, applicants to the Study Scholarships in Music, Performing Arts, Visual Art, or Architecture must apply through UCSD.

UCSD Internal application deadline: October 13, 2014, at 8:00 AM

Please note that DAAD is in the process of changing its submission procedure!  More information will be available in August or September, at which point I will post internal submission instructions to the graduate funding blog.  In the meantime, students should be aware of the internal deadline and start developing their applications.
