A limited number of scholarships are available for outstanding AgEcon candidates from developing countries. These scholarships are provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) under its special initiative “Development-Related Postgraduate Courses” (EPOS).
The DAAD initiative aims at providing academically educated young professionals from developing countries with further specialized studies. The typical scholarship holder will come either from a public authority, a state institution, or a private company in a developing country and as such be engaged in the planning and execution of directives and projects with emphasis on development policy.
DAAD scholars will receive a monthly stipend of EUR 850 over the two-year AgEcon program period and will do a two-months intensive German language course before the program starts. The German language course is an integral part of the DAAD initiative. It takes place in the months of August and September at a Language Center in Germany.
The selection for the DAAD scholarships is highly competitive. Only developing country nationals with at least four years of full-time university education and an outstanding Bachelor’s degree can apply.
In addition to the general AgEcon entry requirements, scholarship applicants need to prove a minimum of two years of relevant professional experience.
Application Deadline: 15th December 2021
