The DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst, or German Academic Exchange Service) Study and Internship Program (SIP) provides scholarship support for U.S. and Canadian students in three categories:
- students pursuing year-long study/internship programs in Germany (SIP),
- students pursuing shorter-term study programs in Germany (SP), and
- students pursuing shorter-term research internships Germany (IP).
Each program supports study at one of the German Universities of Applied Science (UAS7) or research with a laboratory or institute affiliated with one of these universities.
Candidates must be full-time sophomores or juniors in good standing at an accredited U.S. or Canadian college or university; U.S. or Canadian citizenship is not required. Candidates must be pursuing study in a field represented on a UAS7 campus—engineering, science, life sciences, business, management, economics, architecture, art, design, journalism, and social work.
Competitive applicants will have an outstanding record of academic achievement, language skills commensurate with their proposed course of study and/or internship in Germany, strong support from academic and study abroad advisors, and well-reasoned plan-of-study and motivation statements.
