Scholarship Program 1 is addressed to post-graduates and to academics who already gained professional experience and who are interested in postgraduate studies (or research stays) in Germany. This program is administered by regional partner committees, staffed by university professors and church representatives. Normally documents are submitted to the committee of the applicant’s home country.
In Scholarship Program 2 we sponsor advanced foreign students from developing countries who are already enrolled in a German university. Scholarship candidates must be proposed by the corresponding Campus Ministry.
The Eastern-Europe-Program – also administered by regional partner committees – focuses mainly on shorter study or research stays in Germany. Normally we expect that applicants reside in their home countries at the time of applying to KAAD through the regional partner committee.
Serhij Lukanjuk (Ukraine)
The alumnus Serhij Lukanjuk, born in 1978, became head of the International Office at the National Yuriy Fedkovych University in Tscherniwzi (Western Ukraine) in 2009. Thanks to his extensive language skills and intercultural competences he takes an important role in building bridges between Ukrainian and German academic worlds as a reliable “ambassador” of KAAD in the Ukraine. In 2008 he became President of the Association of former KAAD scholars in Ukraine. At Serhij Lukanjuk’s suggestion a centre for German-language studies called “Gedankendach” was founded in 2009.
