For 65 years, KAAD has been offering scholarships, educational and networking support to students and young professionals from the Global South so that they can take on leadership roles in the social and cultural development of their countries.
Health and well-being is one of the central goals for sustainable development. For KAAD and its networks, the thematic field of Global Health and Public Health is a focal point.
The diverse cultural heritage in the different regions of the world is an expression of the history and identity of the local people, and at the same time a treasure that is important for all humanity.
The promotion of peace and the common good is the basic concern of the support and alumni work of KAAD. By supporting change agents, KAAD promotes and strengthens civil society structures, human rights, good governance and leadership, and finally democracies.
Benefit from scholarships, educational events, and personal and spiritual guidance - take on leadership roles in the social and cultural development of your country.
As a scholarship organisation of the Catholic Church in Germany, KAAD supports young professionals from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Eastern Europe through academic (postgraduate) studies and research stays.
The aim is to enable them to take on leadership roles in the social and cultural development of their country.
Social responsibility and church commitment are cornerstones of our support policies.
