[German] DAAD Scholarships


Studying or researching at a German higher education institution needs to be properly financed. Public universities in Germany often do not charge tuition fees. If they charge such fees, however, these will be considerably lower than in other western countries. Thus, the main costs a foreign student or researcher in Germany has to face usually are for traveling, books and other materials relevant to his work, accomodation and the general living expenses. A scholarship or grant may be the answer for those who don’t have the necessary financial resources.

Various German organisations provide scholarships for foreign students and academics studying or doing research in Germany, e.g. the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation or the DAAD. For information about these organisations and their programs see

The DAAD offers a large number of scholarships to Indonesians. Most of its scholarship programs are addressed to university teachers (from public or private universities), to researchers from public institutions and to professionals working in the public or in the private sector. For freshly graduated BA-holders without working experience, the DAAD - in cooperation with Siemens - offers the DAAD-Siemens 21st Century Scholarship Program. For undergraduates from the field of German studies, the DAAD offers summer courses at German universities and study scholarships for one semester. For undergraduates from a wide range of other subjects, the DAAD - in cooperation with the German industry in Indonesia - offers the GIS (German Industry Scholarship) program (for more information on GIS click here .)
