The KurdDAAD scholarship program is run annually. It is aimed at Master’s and doctoral candidates currently studying at KRG universities. While the program is open to all academic disciplines, applications in medicine are limited to non-clinical studies (e.g. public health). The scholarship covers living expenses and tuition fees, including a six-month German language course. Master’s candidates will attend an additional preparatory course of six months before joining their degree program.

Since the scholarship program is jointly conducted by the Ministry of Higher Education of KRG and DAAD, applicants must pass two phases for admission: nomination and qualification. Only applicants nominated by MHE are eligible to apply for the qualification phase. Those who successfully pass the personal interview with the bi-national committee in Erbil will be granted a scholarship in the award phase.
