DAAD research grants are available for doctoral candidates and young postdocs for:

  • Research projects at German universities for the purpose of gaining a Ph.D. in the home country (Research Grants- Bi-nationally Supervised Doctoral Degrees),
  • Research projects at a German university for the purpose of gaining a doctorate in Germany,
  • Research projects or further education and training at German universities for young post-docs.

Note:

In the past, applicants to the DAAD "Research Grant" programme have been, expected to be faculty of a Pakistani university or research institution. Now, postgraduate students (having recently completed 18 years of education) or who are in the process of finalizing their M. Phil course or who are on an "M. Phil leading to PhD" programme or those who have already started their PhD research work without being employed at any university are eligible to apply. Applicants should be clearly aiming at an academic career.
