The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has announced the availability of DAAD Scholarships for Postgraduate Courses with Special Relevance to Developing Countries for Academic Year 2010-2011. Funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Scholarship Program will support selected postgraduate programs with a variety of full or partial scholarships.

The grantees will pursue an internationally recognized master’s degree program in Germany for a duration of 12-24 months, depending on the course and host university.

The Scholarship Program is designed to give junior executives from developing countries an opportunity to attend such degree courses. Therefore, applicants must come from a public authority or state or private company in a developing country and they must be engaged in planning and execution of directives and projects with emphasis on development policy that have bearing on technological, economic, or social areas.

In addition to the abovementioned condition for eligibility to apply, applicants must meet the following minimum criteria: hold a bachelor’s degree (4 years) in related subject; had completed an academic degree far beyond average and at least two years of related professional experience; and is not older than 36 (although age limit for some courses is 32).
