With its Development-Related Postgraduate Courses, the DAAD has created an educational programme that has set several milestones on the way towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Highly trained local professionals networked with international partners play an important role in the development of their countries. They are the best guarantee for a better future with less poverty, more education and good health for all. German universities that offer international postgraduate courses with high relevance to development-related topics can apply for admission to the programme "Development-Related Postgraduate Courses". For courses in this programme, the DAAD sponsors selected persons from Developing Countries with a scholarship award, which enables them to acquire an internationally competitive degree in a Postgraduate Course with heavy emphasis on practical experience. Course focus: The Master of Science Programme in International Health raises awareness of current global health problems and allows students to identify and critically analyse key factors shaping the health and well-being of populations. The programme contributes to sustainable development and focuses on improving the management of health services for disadvantaged populations with a focus on low and middle income societies.

Lugar de disfrute: Europa / Unión Europea  -  ALEMANIA

Características: A scholarship award for the Master of Science in International Health (Berlin).

- After being admitted to the funding programme, the postgraduate course receives a set quota of scholarships per class intake. This quota is determined by application statistics and available budgetary resources. The number of scholarships awarded cannot exceed a ratio of 1:5 in relation to the applications. In addition, funding is provided for a preparatory German language course for the scholarship holders (generally two to six months) at a central language institute or the university. Administration of the scholarships follows directly via the DAAD through the Section responsible for the programme and according to the currently valid scholarship guidelines.

- Because resources from the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) cannot be used for tuition fees at German universities, scholarship holders are to be released from payment of tuition.

- The funding also includes tutorial, professional and technical support through a framework agreement with the DAAD. The maximum amount for tutorial support is currently set at ¤ 18,000 p.a., for other assistance currently ¤ 80 per scholarship holder/per funding month. Within the scope of tutorial support and other assistance, further programme-related means of support for DAAD scholarship holders can be applied for (excursions, network meetings, course accompanying German language classes, material expenses and support subsidies for the scholarship holders, etc).
