The 2017 DAAD competition is closed. The deadline to submit application materials to the Office of Academic and Student Affairs was Thursday, October 12 at 4:00 pm.
This program supports student study and research in Germany. Research grants and scholarships are available at the Ph.D., Master’s and Undergraduate levels. In addition to these opportunities, DAAD also offers other long and short-term grants in the areas of the arts, science and engineering, language study, and journalism. Students interested in these additional opportunities should send their applications directly to DAAD, as they do not fall within the NYU campus submission process. The NYU campus process only pertains to applicants for the Study Scholarships or Long-term Research Grants. Short-term research grant applicants should apply directly to the DAAD New York Office. For more information, please visit the DAAD website.
