The DAAD wishes to stay in contact with its former scholarship holders. The conclusion of a DAAD scholarship marks the beginning of an active, long-term cooperative partnership between the DAAD and its alumni, cultivated in alumni associations around the world.

The DAAD Alumni Concept - Goals and Focuses

The DAAD regards its alumni as long-term partners. Their networks are to be both regionally anchored and to pursue impactful cross-border projects, support international cooperation by German universities and foreign science policy programmes and generate own impulses for collaboration.
