As part of the „In-Country/In-Region Scholarship Programme“ DAAD offers scholarships for PhD and Master studies. The programme is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and aims at university staff in the first line, without neglecting the public sector demand of academically trained personnel.

Female applicants and candidates from less privileged regions or groups are especially encouraged to participate in the programme.

Funding is provided for the usual duration of a course – generally, up to two years for Masters and up to three years for the PhD degree programmes.
