About the DAAD

Founded in Heidelberg in 1925 on the initiative of a single student, the DAAD has since become one of the most important funding organizations worldwide for the international exchange of students and researchers.

Since it was founded, around two million scholars in Germany and abroad have received DAAD funding. The DAAD is a registered association and its members are German institutions of higher education and student bodies. Its activities go far beyond simply awarding grants and scholarships. The DAAD supports the internationalisation of German universities, promotes German studies and the German language abroad, assists developing countries in establishing effective universities and advises decision makers on matters of cultural, education and development policy. Its budget is derived mainly from the federal funding for various ministries, primarily the German Federal Foreign Office, but also from the European Union and a number of enterprises, organisations and foreign governments.

Scholarships for the Best

Providing scholarships remains the DAAD’s “core business”. In 2013 alone we were able to support 30,000 German and international students, doctoral candidates and researchers with scholarships and individual programmes. In order to serve the worldwide demand for highly qualified specialists and managers in the future, we will continue to focus on two main areas: educating young German academics at the best universities around the world, and education and training for outstanding international students, doctoral candidates and researchers here in Germany.

The DAAD offers numerous scholarships for students, researchers and alumni in Kyrgyzstan. To help you find the right scholarship, we have provided you with an overview of the available funding options here. The calls for applications to these programmes can be found in full in the scholarship database.
