DAAD Wise scholars can work under scientists, professors or doctoral students in their ongoing research projects.

How to apply for the DAAD Wise Scholarship?

A student has to first independently search for professors or guides agreeing to allow him or her to intern under them. In case a student receives multiple offers, he or she has to accept only one for the internship.

The professors/guides must be working at a German public or state funded higher education institute or research institute only.

The student then has to apply for the scholarship separately. Selection of applicants is done on the basis of overall academic profile and achievements.

For the first step of the DAAD Wise application, the student has to register in the DAAD Wise portal.

The reference form can be downloaded from the DAAD Wise portal during the application period from the “Request reference” section. The student has to ask the referees to fill the form as well as write a freely formulated reference which will be described in the form. It can either be received by the student in a sealed envelope or sent directly to the DAAD address mentioned above. The references are confidential and cannot be viewed by the applicant. A student has to generate one form per referee.

A student then has to download and complete the rest of the application form from his or her side.

Once you complete the online application, download the Application Summary generated on the portal in PDF format after the online application is completed. Send the hardcopy to the DAAD Office in New Delhi.

Address of the DAAD Office: German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Regional Office New Delhi c/o DLTA Complex, R.K. Khanna Stadium, 1 Africa Avenue, New Delhi 110029 India
