Highly qualified undergraduate students are invited to apply for scholarships funding study, senior thesis research and/or internships in Germany. The goal of this program is to support study abroad in Germany and at German universities. Preference will be given to students whose projects or programs are based at and organized by a German university. Scholarships are available either as part of an organized study abroad program or as part of an individual, student-designed study abroad semester or year.

Eligibility Requirements

Each year, an independent selection committee of academics and international education experts is assembled to select the Undergraduate Scholarship grantees. This committee is looking for students who:

– are currently second and third year students and will be in their third and fourth year during their stay in Germany
– are seeking DAAD support for a 4-10 month period in Germany during the German academic year.
– possess outstanding academic records and personal integrity, as evinced by both their grades and letters of recommendation.
– are US or Canadian citizens or permanent residents thereof. Foreign nationals are eligible if they have been full-time students at an accredited US or Canadian university for more than one year at the time of application and will return to the US or Canada after the scholarship period to complete their Bachelor’s degree.
– have well-defined study, research or internship plans for their stay in Germany.
– submit the DAAD language evaluation form with their application, although German language competency is not mandatory.
– demonstrate an interest in contemporary German and European affairs and who explain the significance of their project in Germany to their future studies, research or professional goals.
– are enrolled, full-time students in an undergraduate degree-granting program at an accredited North American college or university.

Terms of Award

Scholarships may be granted for a minimum of four (one semester) and a maximum of 10 months (one academic year). Recipients will be awarded a monthly stipend of approximately € 650, plus additional funds to help defray travel and research expenses as well as health insurance.
