2015: 90 Years of Promoting “Change by Exchange”– A Success Story

More than two million students and researchers have studied abroad thanks to the support of the DAAD.

In 2015, the The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) celebrated it's 90th birthday. It was established in 1925 on the initiative of a student from Heidelberg. Since then the DAAD has become the world’s largest funding organisation for academic and scientific exchange.

In addition to providing scholarships, the DAAD has gradually developed into an internationalisation agency for the German higher education sector and a think-thank for academic cooperation. To this end, it has built up a global network of 71 regional offices and information centres.
