Higher Education in Germany
Refugees in Germany
How DAAD and Higher Education are helping

More than half of the refugees arriving in Germany are younger than 25 – in other words, an age when education is most needed. With funding from the  Federal Ministry of Education and Research  (BMBF), DAAD has developed a set of measures to offer those who wish to study and possess sufficient academic qualification access to higher education.

German Culture
Summer BBQ
Sustainable BBQs in Germany

Germans are becoming increasingly aware of the fact that the charcoal used for barbecuing in the summer contains many rain forest woods. Instead, consumers are now turning to maize, briquettes made from olive pits, coconut waste and grapevine wood. Learn more about sustainable barbecuing in Germany at the link below.


Application Tip #53
Can I receive a graduate scholarship more than once?

It depends. If you've previously received a Study Scholarship or a one-year Research Grant, you may not receive another. However, you may receive on short-term Research Grant per 12-month period.
