source: http://scholarization.blogspot.com/2009/10/germany-daad-phd-research-grants-awards.html

Research grants are awarded primarily to highly qualified PhD candidates who are early in their academic/professional careers or to individuals wishing to earn a doctoral degree in Germany. Funding may also be granted to recent PhDs who would like to conduct research.

This grant is open to applicants in all fields. However, there are restrictions for those in healthcare related fields, including dentistry, medicine, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine; please contact the DAAD New York office if your academic pursuits are in these fields.


Applicants must be enrolled full-time in an accredited doctoral degree program or engaged full-time in a post-doctoral position. Those wishing to pursue a complete doctoral degree program in Germany do not have to meet this requirement.
Applicants should have a well-defined research project that makes a stay in Germany essential. Preference will be given to applicants who have been invited by a faculty member at a German university to study or do research in a particular university department.

Only doctoral degree candidates who are ABD (all but dissertation) or will have reached ABD status by the time of the grant period and Post Docs are eligible to apply for grants less than ten months in duration.

Applicants in the arts, humanities, and social sciences should have a good command of German.

At the time of application, Applicants must not have been resident in Germany for more than one year.

Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or Canada. Foreign nationals are eligible if they have been full-time students/scholars at an accredited US or Canadian University for at least two years at the time of application and express intent to return to their US/Canadian institution following the research visit to Germany may also be eligible.

Prior recipients of a DAAD grant/scholarship should contact DAAD New York before applying to determine their eligibility.

Scholarship Duration:

Research Grants are awarded for periods of one to 10 months. Applicants wishing to complete a doctoral degree program in Germany may receive up to three one-year extensions.

Starting Date:
Ten-month scholarships must take place during the German academic year (October 2010 to July 2011). Short-term grants (one to six months) must be started between four and twelve months after the application deadline.

Monthly stipend is approximately €1,000. In addition, DAAD will pay for health insurance and provide a flat rate subsidy for travel costs.

Additional Information:
A very limited number of grantees for periods of seven months or longer may be awarded an additional two-month language course grant.
Grantees may not hold a DAAD grant concurrently with funding from another German, German-American, or German-Canadian organization for the same period.

Closing Date:
* November 15, 2009 (postmark) for 10-month and short-term grants
* Please apply at least four months before your projected research stay in Germany and not much more than a year ahead.
