DAAD - Master’s Scholarships for Public Policy and Good Governance 2020


We would like to invite you to spread the word among your students and anyone who might be interested in the Helmut-Schmidt-Programme (Master’s Scholarships for Public Policy and Good Governance) 2020.

This programme is designed to further qualify future leaders in politics, law, economics and administration according to the principles of good governance and to prepare them in a practice-oriented course for their professional life. Very good graduates with a first university degree get the chance to obtain a master’s degree in disciplines that are of special relevance to the social, political and economic development of their home country. The knowledge and experience acquired in Germany should enable the scholarship holders to later contribute to the establishment of democratically oriented economic and social systems aimed at overcoming social differences. With this programme, DAAD intends to support the good governance and civil society structures in selected partner countries and regions.

The scholarship programme is open to graduates in the field of social sciences, political sciences, law, economics and in public administration from Africa, Central and Latin America, Asia, from countries in the Middle East as well as from the Ukraine (see list of countries).
