DAAD-Scholarship possibilities for Libyans

DAAD funding programmes

The DAAD is the world’s largest funding organisation for the international exchange of students and researchers.

The DAAD supports over 100,000 German and international students and researchers around the globe each year – making it the world’s largest funding organisation of its kind. We also promote internationalisation efforts at German universities, help developing countries build their own systems of higher education, and support German Studies and German language programmes abroad.

 

The DAAD funding programs are structured as follows:

  • Students and researchers can qualify individually (Individual Scholarships) for future specialist and executive functions and prepare themselves for responsible conduct.
  • Universities and international partner networks are build up and expanded so that they can implement their internationalisation strategies (Cooperation Programmes and University Partnerships)
  • Country and regional specific discourses on university cooperation for sustainable development shall be organised and corresponding funding programs shall be implemented (Development and Special Programmes)

Individual DAAD-scholarship opportunities for Libyans

We would like to point out that DAAD scholarships are allocated by an independent commission based on the assessment of technical competences in a two-staged process. Only applications that are submitted via the portal (www.funding-guide.de) are valid. It is not necessary to send a copy of the application dossier to the ministry of higher education.

DAAD Kairo Academy in cooperation with DAAD Tunis

Lifelong learning: Knowledge transfer, soft skill development and training of competences

The DAAD Kairo Academy (DKA) offers training seminars for the academic public, since 2011. In cooperation with the DAAD Tunis, the Kairo Academy also offers trainings in Tunisia. Partners of higher education institutions and international associations, alumni and project coordinators from Libya, Algeria and Tunisia could already participate in seven DKA-modules since 2016. 

Under the umbrella of the DAAD Kairo Akademie, a cluster of modules targeting different groups such as prospective applicants for scholarship programs, postdocs, alumni, scholarship holders as well as for academics in general has been developed in cooperation with professional trainers. Module topics range from traditional areas like “Proposal Writing”, “International Networking”, “How to present Scientific Data”, to soft skills like “Effective Time Management” or “Teambuilding”. During the one-day modules, groups of about 25 participants receive intensive training in the selected subject. DAAD intends to address the need for further education to help strengthen Egyptian students and researchers in international competition by offering opportunities for further training rarely found in universities and research institutions.

In Tunisia there is a vast interest in the DKA modules. At their start in September 2016, with the module ‘Project Management’, 20 participants joined the training. In December, already more than 120 participants applied for 75 spots in three modules featuring the topics of ‘Conflict Management’, ‘Proposal Writing’ and ‘Teambuilding’. The DAAD Kairo in cooperation with the DAAD Tunis choose the participants according to their motivation, their language abilities and the target group. ‘I am pleased that I could further develop my competences and simultaneously practice the English language’, explains a participant. The trainings are usually given in English, the language of scientific publications and proposals in international associations.
