Alumni Associations

Alumni associations in our fellows’ home countries represent KAAD in the local church and society. These associations organize academic seminars and offer a space of exchange to our alumni. They can also form the base for setting up social projects of different kinds.
From the viewpoint of KAAD, alumni associations also serve as institutions where new fellows receive assistance to organize their studies in Germany. At the same time they can assist returning fellows in the process of professional re-integration.

Alumni Portal Germany

Maintaining contact to our alumni is important for our work.
Thanks to the KAAD Facebook page www.facebook.com/kaad.Stipendien, both scholars and alumni from all over the world can be reached and in this way, they are kept up to date about KAAD activities, recently published publications as well as about reports and news published on the homepage. Of course, also our KAAD group on the alumni portal www.alumniportal-deutschland.org/ is still active and you are most welcome to join us there. Hundreds of former fellows from many countries are organized in this group and so, important information from (and about) our alumnus from around the world is provided. The portal does not only offer the opportunity to establish and maintain contacts between members of specific academic backgrounds, but also to take part in discussions of the German Foreign Cultural and Economic Policy.
