Introduction

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) annually offers fellowships (research and sandwich-model) to the Government of India for Indian nationals.

The Sandwich Model is a multi-phased fellowship scheme which allows scholars who are registered for their PhD at an Indian university / institute to carry out research for their thesis alternately in India and in Germany under the supervision of an Indian as well as a German guide according to a schedule previously drafted out in consultation with them.

  • Candidates should not be more than 36 years of age on 1st October of the year in which the fellowship begins

  • Candidates must be registered for their PhD degree in India and should have already started working on their thesis. The doctorate degree is awarded by the Indian university / institute exclusively.

 

Duration

Both types of fellowships are awarded initially for a period of one year and extendable upto another 12 months, upon application, and are preceded by a four months German Language course at a Goethe Institute in Germany.

 

Note

The fellowships are offered in fields earmarked in consultation with the Government of India (Department of Education; Ministry of Human Resource Development; Council of Scientific and industrial Research; University Grants Commission). These Government of India agencies announce the offer sometime in July / August and invite applications. Application form are available from them once the offer has been announced.
