Call for Applications invited for Master’s Scholarships for Public Policy and Good Governance (PPGG)

Call for Applications are invited for Master’s Scholarships for Public Policy and Good Governance (PPGG). This programme is designed to further qualify future leaders in politics, economics, law and administration as per the principles of Good Governance and to prepare them in a praxis-oriented course for their professional life.

This programme offers outstanding graduates with a first university degree the opportunity to obtain a Master’s degree in disciplines which are of special relevance for the social, political and economic development of their home country. With the immense knowledge and experience acquired in Germany, the scholarship holders should later contribute to the incorporation of democratically oriented economic and social systems aimed at overcoming social tensions.

Moreover, the training at German institutions of higher education should especially qualify the scholarship holders as partners in political and economic cooperation with Germany. With this programme, DAAD intends to contribute to the support of Good Governance and civil society structures in selected partner countries and regions.

The scholarship scheme is open to candidates from Africa, Latin America, South Asia and Southeast Asia as well as from countries in the Middle East (see list of countries). The target group includes qualified graduates with a first university degree (Bachelor or equivalent) who in the future want to actively contribute to the social and economic development of their home countries. The scholarships are offered to both young graduates without professional experience and for mid-career professionals.

The scholarships are for Master courses at a German institution of higher education. The successful candidates will study on one of the selected Master courses listed below. The courses have an international orientation and are taught in German and/or English. The scholarship holders will study in groups and be offered a special DAAD-financed tutoring at their host institutions. Furthermore, there is the possibility of networking events for participants in different courses and their attendance at tailor-made summer-schools.

Application deadline is: 31st July, 2012
