Duration of the funding

7 months to usually 12 months; the length of the grant is decided by a selection committee and depends on the project in question and the applicant’s work schedule.

Language course (2, 4 or 6 months) before the start of the research stay; the DAAD decides whether to fund the grant holder’s participation and for how long depending on language skills and project.

As an alternative to the TestDaF for scholarship holders who have taken a language course beforehand: the fee for a DSH examination taken during the scholarship period may be reimbursed.


An independent selection committee consisting of specialist scientists reviews applications.
The most important selection criteria:

a convincing and well-planned research project or course of continuing education
academic achievements

Additional documents that prove academic suitability or provide information about extracurricular activities will also be considered in the assessment.
