The Foundation offers scholarships to German speaking post-graduate students, who have shown excellence in their academic work, for further studies in Germany.
The Foundation supports these young and highly qualified academics with an objective that it is an investment in the future. The aim is to enable the trained experts to play their part in further development of their home countries so as to turn these into politically stable and economically strong partners for the entire world.
The targets for scholarships are young (the age limit is 32 years) and highly qualified postgraduates with excellent degrees, good knowledge of the German language and socio-political commitment.
The duration of a scholarship is 3 to 12 months. Scholarships are granted for research projects, internships or the final phase of research studies or doctorates. In the case of doctorates, a 6 to 12 month scholarship within the scope of "sandwich programs" is also possible.
