Dear Visitors!

Do you still remember the wonderful time you spent in a foreign country, taking exciting, informative courses or conducting research?
Or could it be that for some personal reason you never had the opportunity to study or research abroad?
Whatever your motives might be to personally support a student or a scientist, we cordially invite you to learn more about the DAAD-Stiftung. We offer you the chance to support talented, young people in Germany and abroad and make their academic training a reality.

We would be happy to assist you!
