Germany lies in the center of Europe and shares borders with 9 countries: Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, France , Luxemburg, Belgium and the Netherlands. Germany is the most preferred destination for foreign students. International standards in education, science and research play a central role in making the country one of the knowledge hubs of Europe. 


The country has one of the world's best and most extensive school and university systems. Internationally recognized qualifications and comparatively lower costs of education are the two key factors that allure students from all corners of the world. 

Internationally, Germany is one of the most popular country for students from all over the world to take admissions.

As per the Basic Law or the Constitution, the education system in Germany is the responsibility of the individual state governments. Thus, German universities and institutes are run by the individual federal states. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research is the body in charge of educational planning, research promotion and the entire system of higher learning. It acts as a sponsor for young academics, talented persons and also for the exchange programs for trainees, students and academics.

The DAAD scholarship database for foreign students, graduate students and scientists contains extensive information and a variety of possibilities for those who are seeking financial support for their studies, research work or teaching assignments in Germany. The database not only lists all the scholarships offered by the DAAD, but also diverse programmes offered by a wide variety of institutions.

The scholarships offered by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) are awarded to younger university graduates (and in exceptions, also to advanced students) from all academic disciplines as well as from the fields of music, art, and performing arts. Funding is also available for young and early-stage researchers, university teachers and groups of students completing study visits under the guidance of a university teacher. This support is largely financed by the Federal Foreign Office from public funds made available to it.

There are two forms of scholarships - financial and non-monetary scholarships - both of which are often coupled together:In the case of financial scholarships, the recipient is awarded a fixed amount, paid out on a monthly basis over a defined funding period. These types of scholarships are often full scholarships, i.e., they generally cover the applicant's entire living expenses. Recipients of partial scholarships, however, are required to secure additional financial support to cover their living expenses. When awarded a full scholarship, recipients are generally not permitted to receive funding from other scholarships simultaneously.

In addition to financial support, many institutions also offer non-monetary scholarships. Recipients are invited to workshops, lectures and scientific conferences where they also have the opportunity to network with other scholarship holders. In most cases, these non-monetary scholarship programmes aim to create a long-standing relationship between the scholarship holder and the institution well beyond the scholarship period.
