DAAD Fully Funded Postgraduate Scholarships in Germany for Foreign Students


Deadline: October 31, 2017

The DAAD is the world’s largest funding organisation for the international exchange of students and researchers. Since it was founded in 1925, around two million scholars in Germany and abroad have received DAAD funding. It is a registered association and its members are German institutions of higher education and student bodies.

These study scholarships aim to provide foreign applicants from the field of Fine Art, Design, Film, Music and Architecture as well as Drama, Direction, Dance and Choreography with an opportunity to complete a course of extension studies, without gaining a formal degree of qualification, at a German state (public) or state-recognized institution of higher education.


  • A monthly payment of 750 euros
  • Travel allowance, unless these expenses are covered by the home country or another source of funding
  • One-off study allowance
  • Payments towards health, accident and personal liability insurance cover
  • Contribution towards tuition fees that may be charged by the university (max. 500 euros per semester)
  • Monthly rent subsidy
  • Monthly allowance for accompanying members of family

In this study programme, you can complete

  • a Master’s degree/postgraduate degree leading to a final qualification, or
  • A complementary course that does not lead to a final qualification at a state or state-recognised German university of your choice (not an undergraduate course).

This programme only funds projects in the artistic field. Other DAAD scholarship programmes are available for applicants from the field of History of Art or Art Studies or for artists with a scientific project.


  • As a rule, applicants should have taken their final examinations no longer than six years before the application deadline.
  • Applicants who have been resident in Germany for longer than 15 months at the application deadline cannot be considered.
  • If the scholarship holder is enrolled in a Master’s or postgraduate degree programme which includes a study period abroad, funding for this period abroad is usually only possible under the following conditions:
    – The study visit is essential for achievement of the scholarship objective.
    – The study period is no longer than a quarter of the scholarship period.         Longer periods cannot be funded, even partially.
    – The study period does not take place in the home country.
  • Applicants in the fields of Fine Art, Film, Design/Visual Communication and Film should have a knowledge of the language of instruction which corresponds to the requirements of the chosen university at the latest by the time they start their scholarship.

Eligible Regions: Open for all. (Except who have been resident in Germany for longer than 15 months)
