MSc/PhD scholarships in Germany - 2017

Post by Gunjan » 30 Jun 2017, 16:36

There are multiple MSc, PhD and other international programs for 2017 open in Germany. It looks like a good opportunity to apply for higher education in Germany to me.
Anybody from Germany to comment on this scholarship?

Following is from their website

The DAAD is the world’s largest funding organisation for the international exchange of students and researchers. Find out more about who we are and what we stand for.

Since it was founded in 1925, around two million scholars in Germany and abroad have received DAAD funding. It is a registered association and its members are German institutions of higher education and student bodies. Its activities go far beyond simply awarding grants and scholarships. The DAAD supports the internationalisation of German universities, promotes German studies and the German language abroad, assists developing countries in establishing effective universities and advises decision makers on matters of cultural, education and development policy.

Their Moto

The motto of the DAAD is “Change by Exchange” – a concept that applies to more than the students and researchers we support. For the DAAD as a funding organisation, change means welcoming the challenges of this dynamic process and participating in shaping it.

Change by the motto of the DAAD.
Exchange promotes understanding between countries and individuals and helps secure the peace. New scientific findings enable us to meet global challenges. Cooperation contributes to political and social progress.

We are
  • The independent organisation of German higher education institutions and their student bodies, devoted to internationalising the academic system
  • An experienced intermediary between university systems and a worldwide network of external partners
  • A German institution in Europe, which contributes to shaping the European Higher Education Area and the European Research Area and promotes European interests throughout the world
  • A professional organisation which fully supports and relies on its employees, whose competence and international expertise are vital to its operation
We promote academic exchange through
  • Scholarships for the Best – supporting students and researchers in Germany and abroad who have demonstrated outstanding academic merit and wish to assume responsibility
  • Structures for Internationalisation – creating university structures which promote international qualification, mobility and dialogue, and thereby improve the quality of research and instruction
  • Expertise for Academic Collaborations – making our expertise in educational cultures and academic systems available in order to facilitate collaboration between academics and institutions
We want to
  • Educate future leaders, who are connected internationally and act in a globally responsible manner
  • Provide access to the best study and research opportunities available, thereby strengthening the quality and competitiveness of the universities
  • Meet the challenges of the future through the vibrant exchange between academic systems
  • Help developing countries establish effective university systems which, in turn, promote social, economic and political development
  • Bridge divides and lines of conflict and encourage open dialogue between cultures
  • Stimulate interest in Germany, its culture and language and preserve language diversity in research and academia
Change by exchange …
… is our contribution to shaping a global society that finds solutions to the pressing issues of tomorrow.

The DAAD stimulates internationalisation and global responsibility. It acts as an independent intermediary between various partners and their interests. The real motors of change, however, are students and researchers who cross borders every day through their work, and the institutions of higher education which support them in their commitment.

We owe our success to all of those, who share our goals and actively support us in our effort
