DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service)

The German Academic Exchange Service offers several scholarships and grants allowing undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty to study or conduct research in Germany. Students may apply for many of these awards directly. However, students applying for the Study Scholarship (to pursue independent study or complete a master’s degree in Germany), the Study Scholarship in Fine Arts (to work on an artistic project and possibly complete a degree), or the graduate-level Research Grant (to conduct research or pursue a PhD in Germany) must apply through UCSD.

The internal submission deadline is in early October. Please contact the Graduate Fellowship Advisor at 858-822-2938 or gradadvisor@ucsd.edu for more information.

Internal Deadlines

The internal deadline to apply for the DAAD 2019 is October 22, 2018. Applicants should email gradadvisor@ucsd.edu with a PDF of their application.
