DAAD - a brief description
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is the largest funding organisation in the world supporting the international exchange of students and scholars. Since it was founde in 1925 more than 1.9 million scholars in Germany and abroad have received DAAD funding.
Its budget is derived mainly from the federal funding for various ministries, primarily the German Federal Foreign Office, but also from the European Union and a number of enterprises, organisations and foreign governments.
The DAAD runs over 200 programmes, ranging from semesters abroad for undergraduates to doctoral programmes lasting several years, study visits to specialist courses, information-gathering visits by high level delegations from foreign universities to assistance in the establishment of effective higher education systems in developing countries. As a matter of principle, the DAAD’s funding programmes are open to scholars from all disciplines and countries in the world for either visits to or from Germany.
