DAAD boosts the academic cooperation with Libya

The university cooperation and the academic exchange with Libya give important inputs to the political process and have signaling effect. Despite the unstable situation in the country, the universities are functioning well, regular teaching and research operations are taking place and foreign relations are maintained. There is a high interest from Libyan partners and students in cooperation and exchange with Germany.

For decades, the DAAD has promoted academic cooperation with Libya and offers scholarships to students and scholars from Libya to study and research in Germany. University cooperation is funded by projects within the framework of the program “German-Arab Transformation Partnership”.

Last year 25 Libyans, with DAAD scholarships, had the opportunity to study and research in Germany. Also for 2018/19, Libyan applicants have successfully applied for a DAAD scholarship. We congratulate Mr. Belnaser Busnena from the University of Benghazi on the DAAD doctoral scholarship and Mr. Melad Haweyou, also from the University of Benghazi, on the DAAD EPOS scholarship.

You can find the Scholarships for Libyans here:

We are happy to receive your applications!
