Information on DAAD

DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) was founded in 1925 in Heidelberg due to one student’s initiative. Nowadays this organization occupies a leading position in the field of international exchanges of students and scientists.

Since its foundation, DAAD has supported more than 2.1 million scientists, both German and foreign. The organization in form is a union of German higher education institutions and student associations.  DAAD unites 241 German participating universities and 104 student organizations and is an intermediary in the organization of foreign cultural policy, as well as the policy of higher education and science in Germany.

DAAD provides both German and foreign youth the opportunity to gain experience of study and research abroad/in Germany. Most scholarships (out of about 100,000 per year worldwide) are awarded to master’s degree students and graduate students. Specialists with completed higher education are the main focus of support, as they have already been able to demonstrate their academic abilities and can benefit from the scholarship more than students in primary courses.


Branches abroad

DAAD network includes 15 foreign branches and 56 information centers around the world. The budget is mainly formed from funds allocated by various German ministries, primarily the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Union, as well as enterprises, organizations, foreign governments. The head office of DAAD is located in Bonn; there is also a bureau in Berlin.
