DAAD Scholarships

The DAAD, German Academic Exchange Service main function is to promote cooperation between German and international universities and research centers in different fields of study, teaching, research and outreach. Each year, the DAAD awards grants for transnational training programs (Translationale Bildung, TNB), through which the winning institutions (German universities) receive funds exclusively for scholarships for foreign students of academic excellence. Since 2008, our Master's program has received these funds. With the help of a bi-national commission with authorities from both universities, institutions involved and the DAAD law assistant, a selection of students who will be recipients of these scholarships for the corresponding year is made. The scholarship includes the payment of a percentage of the annual tuition fee, an amount for living expenses and a travel scholarship to Germany which includes a fixed co-payment for the airfare for the academic period in Heidelberg.
