About the Organization

As Germany’s main support agency for international academic cooperation, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) was created in 1925.

Private, federally sponsored and state-supported national agency of German higher education institutions, representing 365 German universities and colleges of applied sciences, as well as 52 music and art colleges [2003].

There are no courses or programs offered by the DAAD; instead, the organization distributes competitive, merit-based grants that can be used for study or research in Germany at any of Germany’s accredited universities and colleges.

Furthermore, the foundation gives funding to German undergraduates, graduate students, and students who plan to study and do research outside of Germany. DAAD is the largest academic grant agency in the world, with an annual budget of 522 million Euros and support for around 140.000 individuals globally.

It was started on January 1, 1925, but it was shut down in 1945 and then reopened in January of 1950 with the same purpose as before.
