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: Focuses on poverty-related health problems in low and middle income countries. It includes the promotion of health, prevention and treatment of disease, palliative care and rehabilitation. Studies of health systems, health economics, health policy, and management of health services are central. A cursory view of diverse aspects of health in many developing countries shows a need for improved health policy, more efficient organisation and management at all levels of health systems, and sustainable financing. In order to make health services accessible to the people who need them most, reforms are urgently needed both at the policy-making level and on the delivery side. The M.Sc.IH was developed with these factors in mind.

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

- 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).
