Study Visits and Study Seminars Scholarships

Non Profit Funding » International Grants for Seminars  » Educational Study Visits

In the case of Study Seminars and Practicals, the programme strives for reciprocity, although this is not a condition for the award of funding. This means that funding can initially be provided for visits in one direction only.

Cultural events (e.g. concert tours) can be funded when the focus is on meeting students and university teachers from a relevant academic field and this academic relevance is appropriately documented.

Funding cannot be provided for annual repeat visits (by applicants, faculties or departments); each applicant, faculty or department can only be considered for a maximum of one application per year.

Funding cannot be provided for required/obligatory excursions or for measures that have already been completed.

Duration

Study visits, study seminars or practicals should last no less than 7 days.

Funding is available for a maximum of 12 days (including travel days), although the visits themselves may last longer.

Value

The DAAD takes out health, accident and public/private liability insurance for each funded group.
