DAAD research grants provide foreign doctoral candidates including Argentinians, Brazilians, Chileans, Colombians, Mexicans and many more LAC countries and young academics and scientists with an opportunity to carry out research or continue their education in Germany.
The primary aim of this programme is to promote research projects within the context of doctoral programmes.
Eligibility: Excellently-qualified doctoral candidates and young academics and scientists who have completed a Master's degree or Diplom, or in exceptional cases a Bachelor's degree at the latest by the time they begin their grant-supported research, or those who have already completed a PhD (postdocs).
Doctoral candidates who are already doing their doctorate at a German university cannot apply.
What can be funded? A research project or course of continuing education at a state or state-recognised institution of higher education or a non-university research institute in Germany, which is being carried out in coordination with an academic adviser in Germany.
