The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers the scholarship programme “Hilde Domin Programme” to support students and doctoral candidates from across the globe who are at risk of being formally or de facto denied educational or other rights in their country of origin. The application portal is open all year round for successfully nominated candidates with the deadlines: 31 July 2021 and 31 January 2022.
The scholarship will provide students and doctoral candidates with an opportunity to begin or complete a study or research degree at a higher education institution in Germany.
Potential candidates cannot themselves apply for participation in the Hilde Domin Programme, but are nominated by the management of an institution that is a legal entity domiciled in Germany.
The final selection of candidates will be carried out by independent selection committees appointed by the DAAD. Both the status of risk and academic performance are assessed as part of the selection process.
