German Academic Exchange Service

The German Academic Exchange Service – DAAD provides information about higher education and research in Germany and is the world’s largest funding organization promoting international exchange of students and scholars. Each year about 140,000 students and researchers worldwide are supported by the DAAD. With an annual budget of over €522 Million, the DAAD relies on a network of 15 regional offices and a number of Information Centres (ICs) in over 50 countries.

The DAAD Regional Office New Delhi, established in 1960, has a network of ICs in Bengaluru, Chennai, Mumbai and Pune. Besides administering funding schemes for researchers and academicians from both India and Germany, it undertakes a wide range of activities such as workshops, conferences, information sessions, webinars etc. In addition to ICs, the networks of DAAD’s Young Ambassadors and Research Ambassadors together with the 5000 plus alumni play an important role in highlighting Germany as a destination and a partner for higher education and research.

The DAAD also supports Indo-German initiatives, such as A New Passage to India and the Indo-German Partnership (IGP) in Higher Education and aids internationalisation of academic institutions in both countries.
