Special Announcement on Funding Availability

DAAD finances the majority of its programs through public funds from the German federal government. Unfortunately, the resources to fund the Short-Term Research Grants, Research Stays, and Re-Invitation Grants are no longer available for this year. As a result, applications to these programs cannot be submitted until further notice.

Hopefully, funding may be available again for the fall deadlines of these programs.

Please check daad.org and daad.de for updates.

We thank you for your understanding and for your interest in Germany.
