Study Scholarships - Postgraduate Studies in the Field of Architecture • DAAD

Objective

This scholarship programme offers you the opportunity to continue your education in Germany with a postgraduate or continuing course of study in the field of architecture. The scholarships also promote the exchange of experience and networking amongst colleagues.

Who can apply?

You can apply if you have gained a first university degree in the areas of Architecture, Interior Design, Monument Conservation and Building in Existing Contexts/Reconditioning of Old Buildings, Urban Planning/Urban Development, Landscape Architecture, Landscape Planning at the latest by the time they commence their scholarship-supported study programme.

What can be funded?

Funding for a Master's degree programme/a postgraduate degree programme that has already started in Germany cannot be granted.

If you are enrolled in a Master or postgraduate degree programme which includes a study period abroad, funding for this period abroad is usually only possible under the following conditions:
  • The study visit is essential for achievement of the scholarship objective,
  • the visit does not take place in the home country, and
  • it is no longer than a quarter of the scholarship period (for joint and double-degree programmes up to 50%, if this is provided for in the study regulations). Longer periods cannot be funded, even partially.
This programme funds projects in the area of Design/Projects.
When selecting the desired degree programmes, please take care that they provide a minimum number of CP (credit points according to the European Credit Transfer System/ECTS) for the area of Design/Projects.
This means for degree programmes with
  • 120 CP at least 45 CP
  • 90 CP at least 34 CP
  • 60 CP at least 23 CP.
DAAD scholarships cannot be used for participation in degree programmes which do not meet this requirement. Information on the quantitative distribution of CP can be found in the module overview of the degree programmes on the website of the respective university.

Projects in the area of preservation of historical monuments and construction in existing buildings/restoration of old buildings are also supported.

  • The scholarships are awarded for the duration of the standard period of study for the chosen study programme (up to a maximum of 24 months). Please state the entire period for which you wish to apply for funding in your application. For example, if you are planning a 2-year degree programme, you must directly indicate two years as the desired scholarship duration in your application.

Selection

After you have uploaded your application documents to the DAAD portal, the DAAD will first carry out a formal check. It will be checked whether the application requirements have been met and whether the application is complete. If this is the case, you will be asked to submit your work samples.
A special DAAD committee made up of professors from German universities makes the final decision about scholarships in the field of architecture. The decision is based upon written applications and work samples which have to be submitted (see:www.daad.de/extrainfo).

Selection criteria

  • the artistic qualification and artistic maturity, measured by study achievements and work samples
  • the quality of the project as measured by the study plan and the letter of motivation
In addition, the selection committee will give due consideration to aspects of equal opportunities, on which you can provide information in the application form.
For further information on the selection procedure, please refer to the Important Scholarship Information / Section E.

Further information

Admission to the University
Confirmation of a scholarship does not automatically guarantee admission to one of the host universities. The respective university decides whether or not to offer scholarship holders a place. In most cases, applicants are required to take an entrance examination. Please find out in time about admission requirements (see also the following information under "Language skills") and application deadlines and interview dates at your chosen university, and bear in mind that these may be several months before the planned start of your studies or even before the DAAD awards the scholarship. We cannot cover the costs of the entrance examination. If an applicant is offered a scholarship by the DAAD but fails to be admitted to any of the universities indicated in the application, he/she may not make use of the scholarship that has already been awarded.
