DAAD Study Scholarships and Research Grants
Competition is currently closed for the DAAD Study Scholarships and Research Grants, two of many awards offered by the DAAD. As UIC is a Partner University, applicants are required to go through a campus-based pre-selection committee review. Applicants must read the following instructions carefully, as the campus review is significantly different this year.
The campus deadline for both awards is anticipated to be in mid-October of 2013. Each applicant must submit an application packet (either electronically as a single PDF, or in hard copy) containing the following materials:
- Proposal essay (five to six pages in length)
- Two letters of recommendation
- Evidence of contact with a German institution
- Sprachzeugnis (click to download)
- For ABD students, letter of confirmation of ABD status from faculty advisor
Applicants should carefully and thoroughly review the information at the Study Scholarship and Research Grant websites for further information on these materials. Check for updates here as well, inot the fall 2013 semester.
While the final application to the DAAD is electronic, the campus pre-selection committee does not need a copy of the electronic application, since that application can only be completed in one sitting, and cannot be retrieved the an applicant once it is submitted. Rather, students will work with the Fellowship Coordinator and the pre-selection committee on the proposal in order to be able to submit the strongest possible application electronically by the final institutional November 15 deadline.
After the pre-selection committee review, applicants must submit the application electronically and bring a signed hard copy of that application to the External Fellowship Coordinator. The Fellowships Office is required to send all applications in one package to the DAAD on that date.
