DAAD German Studies Research Grant

This specialized DAAD program offers 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 Germany. 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. Undergraduates with at least junior (third-year) standing pursuing a German studies track or minor may be nominated for the grant by their department and/or program chair. Applicants are expected to have completed two years of college German 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 or permanent residents of the U.S. and Canada who are enrolled full time at the university that nominates them. There is a fall deadline on November 1 and a spring deadline on May . For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
