The German Academic Exchange Service, or “DAAD” as it’s known by its German acronym, provides support for over 70,000 people every year, making it the largest international exchange organization in the world. DAAD is a publicly-funded, self-governing membership organization of the higher education institutions in Germany.

The New York office of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) was founded in 1971 to support academic exchange between the US, Canada, and Germany. They offer grants and scholarships for undergraduates through faculty members to spend time in or conduct research on Germany. Some programs include intensive language grants, support for conferences, the “High Tech in Germany” summer program for engineers, graduate grants for research/study, a study scholarship for graduating seniors and much more.

Numerous programs and scholarships are available for students interested in studying, conducting research, or interning in Germany.  These scholarships are competitive but have a national awarding rate of 20-30%, so you should definitely apply.
