DAAD offers a wide range of funding opportunities for individuals and institutions in higher education. Since DAAD New York is the representative office for all of North America, its programs are open to students, faculty, administrators, and staff of higher education institutions geographically located in the United States, Canada and their territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, etc). There are a few special programs that may extend to constituencies beyond that.
Our primary goal is to facilitate transatlantic mobility to Germany for US and Canadian scholars, therefore Germany must be a component of your intended academic travel.* Funding is awarded on a competitive basis; we consider the academic merit of the individual, the feasibility and quality of the proposal, and the impact of the applicant and application as a whole.
