2016/2017 KAAD Scholarships in Germany for Developing Countries Students

Applications are invited for the 2016/2017 KAAD Scholarships in Germany for Developing Countries Students. These scholarships are awarded to students for pursuing master’s degree, PhD or for a postdoctoral research project (2-6 months for established university lecturers) at a German university

Scholarship description

The Catholic Academic Exchange Service (KAAD) is the scholarship institution of the German Catholic Church for post-graduate students and scientists from developing countries. The KAAD supports his scholars in form of scholarships and educational programs and offers spiritual and personal assistance in view of future multiplying functions students will have in their home countries

There is no specific subject-preference. However, the selection board has often given preference to courses and subjects that they felt to be of significance for the home country of the applicant. This holds true especially for subjects of PhD-theses. There is therefore a certain leaning towards “development oriented” studies–this does however not mean that other fields (cultural, philosophic, linguistic, etc.) cannot be of significance for a country and are ruled out

Eligibility

For the scholarship programme 1 of KAAD, applicants can apply if they:

  • Come from a developing or emerging country in Africa, Asia, the Middle East or Latin America and are currently living there
  • Have a university degree and professional experience from your home country
  • Want to acquire a master’s degree or a PhD at a German university or do a post-doctoral research project (2-6 months for established university lecturers) at a German university
  • Is a Catholic Christian (or general belong to a Christian denomination). Candidates from other religions can apply if they are proposed by Catholic partners and can prove their commitment to interreligious dialogue
  • Possess German language skills before starting the studies (KAAD can provide a language course of max. 6 months in Germany).

Students from the following developing or emerging countries can apply for these KAAD scholarships:

Africa, Asia, Near and Middle East (including North Africa) and Latin America)

Focus Countries Ghana, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Cameroon and Nigeria (Africa)

Bangladesh, Indonesia, Cambodia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and China (Asia)

Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine/Israel and Syria (the Middle East)

Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil (Latin America)

Note: applicants from outside the home country will often need to meet specific English language/other language requirements in order to be able to study there

How to apply

The first request is placed through filling the application questionnaire and sending it to the KAAD offices. Normally documents are submitted to the committee of the applicant’s home country. In the course of the application process, more documents need to be provided by the applicant and the KAAD-Partner-Committees are involved. If the pre-selection process has been positive for the applicant, the application is passed on to an independent selection board, which sits twice per year (in March and in September)

Application deadline

Applications to be tabled in the March-session of the selection board need to be complete by end of November the previous year. Many times, applicants get admission letters (especially for Master-courses) only when these deadlines have passed. In these cases, the university has to be asked to defer the admission to the next academic year. Applications can be made already before admission letters are received. However at the end of the application process, the applicant needs to show either an admission letter or a confirmation by the university that they are eligible for the course and that the application has been received and being processed

2016 KAAD Scholarships in Germany for Developing Countries’ Students

Kaad-logoApplications are invited for the 2016 KAAD Scholarships in Germany for Developing Countries’ Students. These scholarships are awarded to students for pursuing master’s degree, PhD or for a postdoctoral research project (2-6 months for established university lecturers) at a German university

Scholarship description

The KAAD Scholarship Program 1 is addressed to post-graduates and to academics who already gained professional experience and who are interested in postgraduate studies (or research stays) in Germany. This program is administered by regional partner committees, staffed by university professors and church representatives. Normally documents are submitted to the committee of the applicant’s home country.

There is no specific subject-preference. However, the selection board has often given preference to courses and subjects that they felt to be of significance for the home country of the applicant. This holds true especially for subjects of PhD-theses. There is therefore a certain leaning towards “development oriented” studies–this does however not mean that other fields (cultural, philosophic, linguistic, etc.) cannot be of significance for a country and are ruled out

Eligibility

For the scholarship programme 1 of KAAD, you can apply if you:

  • Comefrom a developing or emerging country in Africa, Asia, the Middle East or Latin America
  • Havea university degree and professional experience from your home country
  • Wantto acquire a master’s degree or a PhD at a German university or do a post-doctoral research project (2-6 months forestablished university lecturers) at a German university
  • Area Catholic Christian (or generally belong to a Christian denomination). Candidates from other religions can apply if they are proposed by Catholic partners and can prove their commitment to interreligious dialogue
  • PossessGerman language skills before starting the studies (KAAD can provide a language course of max. 6 months in Germany)

Students from the following developing or emerging countries can apply for this scholarship:

(Africa, Asia, Near and Middle East (including North Africa) and Latin America) [Focus Countries are: Ghana, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Cameroon and Nigeria (Africa), Bangladesh, Indonesia, Cambodia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and China (Asia), Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine/Israel and Syria (the Middle East) or Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil (Latin America)]

How to apply

  • The first request is placed through filling the application questionnaire and sending it to the KAAD offices
  • Normally documents are submitted to the committee of the applicant’s home country
  • In the course of the application process, more documents need to be provided by the applicant and the KAAD-Partner-Committees are involved
  • If the pre-selection process has been positive for the applicant, the application is passed on to an independent selection board, which sits twice per year (in March and in September)

Application deadline

  • Applications to be tabled in the March-session of the selection board need to be complete by end of November the previous year
  • Many times, applicants get admission letters (especially for Master-courses) only when these deadlines have passed
  • In these cases, the university has to be asked to defer the admission to the next academic year
  • Applications can be made already before admission letters are received. However at the end of the application process, the applicant needs to show either an admission letter or a confirmation by the university that they are eligible for the course and that the application has been received and being processed
