Since there are more than 100 scholarship programs available for international students, the eligibility criteria tremendously vary. However, there are a few basic requirements for DAAD Scholarships that all applicants must satisfy.

Language Skills: Excellent English language proficiency, with a minimum IELTS score of 6.5.
(Knowledge of the German language is not mandatory but highly recommended.)
Academic Grades: Minimum aggregate of 8.5 CGPA or 85% or equivalent depending upon the applied degree.
Obtain a NOC (No Objection Certificate) from your home institution, if applying for an exchange or short-term research program.
Work Experience: A minimum of 2 years of work experience, research work, teaching/graduate assistantship.
Submit a short 500- 1000 word research proposal/SOP. In some cases CV is sufficient.

Note: Apart from fulfilling these requirements, prospective applicants must also hold proof of accommodation for visa insurance.


All DAAD scholarships have their own set of selection committees which evaluate each application comprehensively. This committee may be established locally (in India for Indian students) or in Germany, depending on the scholarship program. Selections are primarily based on the following factors:

Quality of the project
Academic Achievements
Duration of research/fieldwork
Research proposal/Work experience
While there are no interview sessions, depending on the scholarship program and the applicant’s location, a personal introduction may be required.
