DAAD Scholarship Programmes


The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) offers a large number of scholarship opportunities for studying abroad. These scholarships support individually organized study visits, structured programmes, stays abroad for writing final papers and language courses. Here we provide you with some brief information on the most important programmes.


Many scholarship programmes are part of the Programm zur Steigerung der Mobilität von deutschen Studierenden (PROMOS). Applications for these scholarships can be handed in at the University of Göttingen. Other programmes (scholarships for a whole academic year or for structured programmes) are managed by the DAAD. Please see the scholarship database (link in the right-hand column).


Being well informed and well prepared will help make the application process much easier and quicker. It is also very important to read the brochure „Förderungsmöglichkeiten für Deutsche“ (Scholarship possibilities for German students), which can be found at the Office of Student Affairs, or on the DAAD homepage. Of course we are also happy to advise you in person at the Office of Student Affairs.
