Current information on the impact of the war on academic exchange with Russia

The DAAD restricts academic exchange with Russia, maintains access channels to Germany

We are currently restricting our exchange activities with Russia (see also ). The following activities are currently suspended:

  • The realization of DAAD-funded stays by German students, lecturers and researchers at Russian higher education institutions
  • Joint events between German and Russian institutes of higher education
  • Joint activities with and direct funding of Russian academic institutions by the DAAD

In contrast, we are continuing the DAAD scholarship programmes for students and researchers from Russia. Russian DAAD scholarship holders who are already in Germany will also keep their scholarships and can continue their stay as agreed. In this way, we want to strengthen Russians who, like us, advocate an international community based on rules and values.
