5000 German Scholarship

About German Scholarships:

The German Government is offering 5000 Scholarships for Afghan female students to study in one of the neighboring countries. The program is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with around seven million euros will receive financial assistance from the (BMZ) and German Academic Exchange Services (DAAD).

Says DAAD President Prof. Dr. Joybrato Mukherjee; “For the people of Afghanistan, the situation is an ongoing calamity, Young women, in particular, have been particularly badly hit: they can no longer participate in social activities. They have no academic training opportunities because they have been excluded from universities.

The new scholarship initiative is thus a vital building component in enabling young women, in collaboration with our international partner organizations, to prepare for university and to provide bachelor’s and master’s degrees to Afghan women refugees at universities in the region.”

To this end, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is launching a scholarship program for young people who have moved to Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, or Bangladesh to escape Taliban repression.

The target group is primarily Afghan women who have been banned from studying in their home country since the end of December.
