    Rating: 5.0/5 (4 votes cast)


These grants and scholarships aim to provide foreign academics and scientists working in higher education or at research institutes with an opportunity to carry out a research project at a state (public) or state-recognized higher education institution or non-university research institute in Germany.

Depending on the applicant’s work schedule, the research stay will last between one and three months. The stay may begin in May/June 2014 at the earliest.


  • Applications for DAAD research stays are open to excellently-qualified academics and scientists who should generally hold a doctorate/PhD. All applicants must be working in higher education or at a research institute in Indonesia.
  • Besides their previous academic achievements (for example, recent publications), the most important selection criterion is a convincing and well-planned research project to be completed during the stay in Germany. This must have been coordinated and agreed with a research collaboration partner at the chosen host institute in Germany. Written confirmation of the research cooperation, including the reference to the applicant’s project, must be included with the application papers.
  • The application must provide proof of a workplace being provided at the host institute.
  • DAAD support for a research stay can only be awarded once in any three-year period.
  • Former fellows of the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation are requested to contact the Humboldt-Foundation first.
