Many have not heard of the DAAD Scholarship or the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst unless you live in Germany. DAAD is also known as The German Academic Exchange Service. It is a publicly-funded independent organization of higher education institutions in Germany. They have fourteen offices all over the world. There is one in New York. They help support over 57,000 students and faculty for international research and study. They do this to help tie institutions around the world together. They also want to promote Germany as the place to go to pursue your academic studies.
They have so many different DAAD scholarships to be awarded but we will try and give you a general idea so as not to confuse. First there are the DAAD Undergraduate Scholarships. This is a DAAD scholarship to help those wishing to study abroad in Germany. There are many requirements for this Daad scholarship. One is that you must be a second or third year student. You must be seeking DAAD support for at least a 4 to 10 month period of study. You must be a United States citizen or a Canadian citizen. A student must have a well thought out study, research or internship plans. The DAAD language evaluation form must be turned in. A student must be interested in contemporary German and European affairs. A student will be given a monthly stipend of approximately $863 and health insurance. Applications for next year must be in my January 31, 2011.
There are many different DAAD undergraduate scholarships. These are all in detail on the link that we will provide on the bottom of this page. These are all scholarships pertaining to studies, internships or research grants. Here are a few of the ones we found:
