The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is the largest funding organisation in the world supporting the international exchange of students and scholars. Since it was founded in 1925, more than 1.5 million scholars in Germany and abroad have received DAAD funding.

With German institutions of higher education and student bodies, its activities go far beyond awarding grants and scholarships. The DAAD supports the internationalisation of German universities, promotes German studies and the German language abroad, runs initiatives for universities in developing countries and advises decision makers on matters of cultural, education and development policy.Its budget is derived mainly from the federal funding for various ministries, primarily the German Federal Foreign Office, but also from the European Union and a number of enterprises, organisations and foreign governments.

The DAAD’s programmes have the following five strategic goals:

  • to encourage outstanding young students and academics from abroad to come to Germany for study and research visits and to maintain contact with them as partners
  • to qualify young German researchers and professionals at the very best institutions around the world in a spirit of tolerance and openness
  • to promote the internationality and appeal of Germany’s institutions of higher education
  • to support German language, literature and cultural studies at foreign universities
  • to assist developing countries in the southern hemisphere and reforming countries in the former Eastern Bloc in the establishment of effective higher education

The DAAD head office is located in Bonn, Germany.
