East European Program

Who can apply?

You can apply for the East-European Program if you

  • are a candidate from a country in Middle-, East and Southeast-Europe, from a Caucasian Country or Central Asia
  • have good German language skills
  • are catholic Christian (or general belong to a Christian denomination). Candidates from other religions can apply if they are proposed by Catholic partners and can prove their commitment to interreligious dialogue.

We support

  • Junior scientist and post-graduates, who work on PhD or Habilitation and plan a scientific stay in Germany (full PhD studies and master programs are also possible, if not viable in the home country)
  • Scientists and lecturers for short scientific stays (up to six months) in Germany
  • Scientific research stays for students in master programs (up to one semester)
  • Students who want to acquire a master’s degree or a PhD at a German university or do a post-doctoral research project (2-6 months for established university lecturers) at a German university

What does KAAD expect from you?

  • Above-average performance in studies and research
  • The orientation of your studies or research towards permanent reintegration in your home region (otherwise the scholarship is turned into a loan)
  • Religious and social commitment (activities) and willingness to inter-religious dialogue.

Interested people send as first step the filled questionnaire to leimbach(at)kaad.de. For detailed information about the double-stage application procedure please send an e-mail with your questions or contact our partner committee in your country.
If you are eligible to applicate we will sent you the full application forms. The deadlines for the full application are 15th of January (decision in March) and 30th of June (decision in September).
