DAAD Scholarship for Students from Developing Countries
The MIPLC is a part of the DAAD’s program of “Postgraduate Courses for Professionals with Relevance to Developing Countries.” If you would like to apply for the scholarship offered in this context, please note that several special conditions apply. Please read the information provided here very carefully.

DAAD Scholarship Requirements
DISCLAIMER: The following information has been put together with the utmost care; however, we cannot guarantee its accuracy. Please refer to the DAAD scholarship brochure for the latest information. Where MIPLC and DAAD have differing requirements, assume that the higher requirement will be applied.

If you would like to apply for the DAAD scholarship “Postgraduate Courses for Professionals with Relevance to Developing Countries”, please make sure that you fulfill the following formal requirements:

  • You are 36 years or younger;
  • You hold at least a four-year Bachelor’s degree, completed with above-average results;
  • You received your degree no more than six years ago;
  • You have at least two years of full-time professional experience;
  • Your English test scores meet the MIPLC requirements, i.e. IELTS band 7.0, or TOEFL ibT 100/ cbT 250/ pbT 600. Institutional TOEFL scores will not be accepted.

Due to the high volume of applications, we have to apply these criteria very strictly. If you do not fulfill them, you will not be eligible for the DAAD scholarship.

Application Procedure
To apply for this scholarship, please proceed as follows:

  • Please refer to the DAAD program brochure 2013/14 (not yet available) and read the information carefully;
  • Determine whether you are eligible to apply by DAAD and MIPLC standards;
  • Apply for admission to the MIPLC by using our online application system, accessible below, and follow the instructions provided;
  • When you come to the end of the online application, check “I would like to apply for financial assistance” and “I would like to apply for the DAAD scholarship” and complete the MIPLC Financial Assistance Application Form that opens automatically;
  • Print the forms and add all required documentation, as per the instructions provided;
  • Download and complete the DAAD Scholarship Application Form and add the other documents required by the DAAD (for details, please refer to the brochure - NB: the MIPLC does not require a research exposé);
  • Send your complete application as detailed below.

Please submit your application directly to the MIPLC, unless you are from Cameroon, Myanmar, or Nigeria, in which case you must submit your application through the German Embassy in your country.

Please make sure that your file is complete with all the documents indicated above. Otherwise, your application cannot be processed. Your complete file must reach the MIPLC by the dates specified below.

If You Have Questions Concerning the DAAD Application Form and Requirements
Section 6, “Duration of planned stay in Germany”: The start and end dates of the academic year 2013/14 have not yet been set. The program will probably start in early October 2013 and will end in mid-September 2014 (date of submission of Master’s Thesis). The exact dates will be announced in due time in our academic calendar.

The MIPLC does not require a “research exposé” (DAAD brochure, page 12). Therefore, you do not have to (and should not) submit such an exposé.

For any other questions you may have concerning the DAAD Application Form (e.g., “What should I enter in section…?”), or the DAAD requirements (e.g., concerning the documents to be submitted as per the DAAD’s brochure), please contact your nearest DAAD office.

The MIPLC cannot answer any questions related to the DAAD. The MIPLC can only answer questions related to the MIPLC’s own requirements.

Processing Information
As a first step, all complete applications will be screened by the MIPLC and processed for admission. All candidates will be informed by the MIPLC whether or not they have been admitted to our LL.M. program. If you do not get admitted to the MIPLC, your DAAD scholarship application will not be considered, either.

From the list of admitted candidates, the MIPLC will then put together a shortlist of candidates for the DAAD scholarship. Once this list has been confirmed by the DAAD, all shortlisted applicants must undergo a telephone interview.

The final decision about allocating the scholarship rests with the DAAD. The successful applicant(s) will be informed by the DAAD directly. All unsuccessful applicants will receive communication from the MIPLC.

You should learn about the outcome of your application by late February of the new year. In the meantime, please refrain from contacting us or the DAAD to ask for status updates.

Special Application Deadlines
You must apply (more than) a year in advance.

The deadline for applications is October 15. Your complete file with all required documents (this includes your English test scores) must reach the MIPLC by this date. Late or incomplete applications cannot be considered.

Please send your documents in good time to ensure their timely arrival at the MIPLC. We are regrettably not in a position to track your files with the German postal service or any courier services.

Applicants from Cameroon, Myanmar, or Nigeria must submit their application file to the German Embassy in their home country. The deadline for such applications for the 2012/13 intake was July 31, 2011. Applications from Cameroon, Myanmar, or Nigeria for the academic year 2012/13 therefore can no longer be accepted. We ask for your understanding.

  3. i am soryy very sorry. DAAD give fellowship for those who are member of the governement. Those citizens who are not a memeber of the ruling politicaly parties in our country but who are working for the community do not get fellowship. This is because the DAAD requirement is that letter of reference from the previous university. Since all universities are poleticians they do not like to give reference letter. please work for people, not for political parties only
