KAAD Scholarship in Germany for International Students from Developing Countries (including Africa), 2018

Brief Description: KAAD is working with partner countries in the regions mentioned below to provide scholarship opportunities to citizens who are interested in research. There are so-called Partner Committees in these countries and applications are channeled via them.

Eligible Countries: Countries in Africa, EU/EEA, Non-EU/EEA, Asia, the Middle East or Latin America.

To be taken at (country): Germany.  There is also the possibility for Master-scholarships at local universities.

Offered annually? Yes

Eligible 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.) cannot be of significance for a country and are ruled out.

About the Award: The KAAD Scholarship Program is addressed to post-graduates and to academics living in their home countries who already gained professional experience and who are interested in postgraduate studies (or research stays) in Germany. This program is administered by regional partner committees, staffed by university professors and church representatives. Normally documents are submitted to the committee of the applicant’s home country.

Type: Postgraduate(Masters and PhD) scholarship

Eligibility: To be eligible, candidates must:
  • come from a developing or emerging country in Africa, EU/EEA, Non-EU/EEA, Asia, the Middle East or Latin America and are currently living there
  • have a university degree and professional experience from their home country
  • want to acquire a master’s degree or a PhD at a German university or do a post-doctoral research project (2-6 months for established university lecturers) at a German university
  • possess German language skills before starting the studies (KAAD can provide a language course of max. 6 months in Germany)
Selection Criteria:
  • KAAD’s mission is to give scholarships to Eligible and Brilliant Students.
  • However, among the scholars, there are Protestant Christians, Orthodox Christians (especially from Africa) and Muslims.
