The scholarships are awarded in accordance with the guidelines of the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst / DAAD), funded by the Federal Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt / AA).

Target group

Funding is aimed at international students in the key final stage of their studies.

Students can only be given financial support if they are writing their final thesis in Germany.
They can only receive funding abroad if it is compulsory for the student to write their final thesis abroad in that particular degree programme.
