To improve international relations and bilateral research cooperations between German and foreign universities, the German Academi Exchange Service (DAAD) supports exchanges of scientists and academics from partner countries. The basis of these exchanges are cultural exchange programmes and bilateral agreements with foreign partner organisations.
The scholarship consists on monthly payments of: 2,000 euros for assistant teachers, assistant professors and lecturers and 2,150 euros for professors.
Foreign academics and scientists who have usually completed a doctoral degree and work at a university or research institute in their home country can apply for this scholarship.
Research stays at state or state-recognised institutions of higher education or non-university research institutes in Germany can be founded. Funding may only be claimed once within three years. Lecture tours or visits to congresses are not funded. Unless otherwise regulated by bilateral agreements, the costs of the outward and return journey are borne by the respective sending country. Other payments cannot be made.
The duration of the funding goes from 14 days to three months; the length of the grant is decided by a selection committee and depends on the project in question and the applicant's work schedule. The grant is non-renewable.
An independent selection committee reviews applications.
