Individual Scholarships

Many institutions in Germany or in other countries give individual grants to PhD students. For highly gifted students from Germany there is e.g. the Studienstiftung. For foreign students the most important organisation supporting studies in Germany is the Deutscher Akademische Austauschdienst (DAAD - German Academic Exchange Service). It has offices in Cairo, Hanoi, Jakarta, London, Mexico City, Moskow, Nairobi, New Delhi, New York, Paris, Peking, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Warsaw. Governments of many countries provide grants which are awarded in collaboration with the DAAD. Please, see the respective web-pages of these institutions.
