Becas para cursos de verano 2011 en Alemania



University Summer Courses offered in Germany for Foreign Students and Graduates

Objective
These grants are awarded to enable students and graduates to attend German language and area studies courses plus special language/terminology courses that are offered by state (public) or state-recognised German higher education institutions and by affiliated language schools (list of courses: www.daad.de/deutschland/deutsch-lernen/sommerkurse/00490.en.html).
Duration
  • The grants run for at least 18 days of course with a minimum of 25 hours of teaching per week. Courses are taught in German (language of instruction) and are held in the summer months (from May at the earliest) during the recess period at German universities.
  • The grants cannot be extended.


Value

  • The DAAD awards a part-cost grant of 650,- euros, a flat-rate course fee allowance of 200,- euros, plus possibly a regionally-graduated flat-rate travel allowance based on country of origin (with the exception of Western Europe, see: www.daad.de/rkp-hsk_isk). In contrast to the above sum, participants from least developed countries as defined by the so-called "DAC List" (1) receive a flat-rate course fee allowance of 375,- euros.
