This opportunity is available for excellently-qualified graduates who have completed a first degree (Bachelor, Diplom or comparable academic degree) at the latest by the time they commence their scholarship-supported study programme. For applicants from artistic disciplines and the field of architecture, the DAAD offers subject-specific scholarship programmes.
The scholarships are awarded for the duration of the standard period of study for the chosen study programme (up to a maximum of 24 months).

Applicants who are already in Germany in the first academic year of a 2-year postgraduate or Master's programme at the time of their application may apply for a scholarship for the second year of study. In this case, it is not possible to extend the scholarship.
