To support sustainable development DAAD offers both scholarships for studies – in Germany and within home regions – and university cooperation programmes. The programmes mainly enhance human capacity, further quality and relevance of learning, and contribute to solving global challenges.

The DAAD contributes to development cooperation in numerous ways and with a broad range of scholarships, partnership programmes and advising services. We strive to achieve our development policy goals with an approach that is based on partnership, sustainability and transparency.
All DAAD programmes are based on the interest of Universities in Germany and abroad to cooperate for the advancement of sustainable development. The university cooperation projects funded by the DAAD enhance human capacity, further quality and relevance of learning, and contribute to the search for solutions to global challenges.
Over the years, a variety of scholarship programmes have been created to allow for tailormade support of sustainable development. DAAD scholarships for studies in Germany further the academic and practice oriented progress of young professionals. In-region scholarships will allow talented young university lecturers to become part of the next generation of top teaching staff in expanding university systems.
