More Info

This specialized DAAD program offers up to ten German Studies Research Grants to highly qualified undergraduate and graduate students who are nominated by their department/program chairs. The grant may be used for short-term research (one to two months) in either Germany or North America.

Eligibility Requirements
Master's level graduate students in the humanities and social sciences earning a certificate or working on a project in German Studies may be nominated for the grant by their department and/or program chair. Applicants are expected to have completed two years of college-level German language studies and a minimum of three courses in German Studies (literature, history, politics or other fields) at the time of nomination. Grants are restricted to citizens of the US and Canada who are enrolled full time at the university that nominates them.

Terms of Award 

Research support ranging in value from $1,500 to $2,500 is available to individual scholarship recipients and is intended to offset living and travel costs during the active research phase. Support cannot be provided for stays in Germany in the context of study abroad programs.

The program is designed to encourage research and promote the study of cultural, political, historical, economic and social aspects of modern and contemporary German affairs from an inter- and multidisciplinary perspective.
