DAAD - German Academic Exchange Service

DAAD offers many scholarships for students to study or do research in Germany, including the Study Scholarship and the Research Grant programs:

1. Study Scholarships are offered for a Full Master’s degree program at a German University or for study at a German university as part of postgraduate or Master’s degree programs completed in Canada. Application instructions can be found here.

2. One-Year Research Grants are awarded to candidates who have completed a Master’s degree, postdocs, individuals wishing to earn a doctoral degree in Germany, or in exceptional cases those with a Bachelor’s degree by the time they begin their grant-supported research. Application instructions can be found here

As a DAAD partner university, the University of Alberta can nominate up to two priority candidates for the Study Scholarship and/or One-Year Research Grant. Students applying for the Study Scholarship and/or One-Year Research Grant should send their application to Markus Vuorensola, Scholarship Coordinator at markus.vuorensola@ualberta.ca by the internal deadline date, October 13th, 2020, in order to be considered as a priority candidate. Please note that applicants in the artistic fields (Fine Art, Design, Film, Music and Performing Arts) and for Short-Term Research Grants should send their applications directly to DAAD.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Students interested in applying for the internal competition should NOT submit their application prior to the University's internal deadline, as you will not be able to make changes to your application after it's been submitted. 

Students interested in applying should send an email to Markus Vuorensola, Scholarship Coordinator at markus.vuorensola@ualberta.ca to arrange a virtual meeting in regards to the application process.
