The MIPLC is a part of the DAAD’s program of “Development-Related Postgraduate Courses” (see Postgraduate Courses for Professionals with Relevance to Developing Countries) targeted at students from developing countries. In partnership with DAAD, it offers MIPLC-DAAD Scholarship for Students from Developing Countries. If you would like to apply for the scholarship offered in this context, please note that several special conditions apply.

Applications for 2020/21 MIPLC-DAAD Scholarship for Students from Developing Countries will be accepted from 1 December 2019 through 30 June, 2020.

Method of Application
To apply for this scholarship, determine whether you are eligible to apply by DAAD and MIPLC standards, keeping in mind that where MIPLC and DAAD have differing requirements, the stricter requirements prevail. Apply for admission to the MIPLC using the online application system (see How to Apply). Download and complete the DAAD Scholarship Application Form and add the other documents required by the DAAD. Make sure that your file is complete, including all three application forms (the MIPLC application form for admission; the MIPLC application form for financial assistance, and the DAAD application form for the scholarship) and all the required documents. Submit your application directly to the MIPLC, unless you are from Cameroon, in which case you must submit your application through the German Embassy in your country.

It is important to read the Application Instructions(pdf), and visit the official website (link to it is below) for complete information on how to apply for this scholarship.

You have to apply more than a year in advance. Applications for admission are accepted from December 1 until April 30 for the academic year starting that fall. In line with other universities, we have extended the deadline for the 2020/21 intake until June 30, 2020.

Please send your documents in good time to ensure their timely arrival at the MIPLC. MIPLC is regrettably not in a position to track your files with the German postal service or any courier services. The successful applicants will be informed by the DAAD directly. All unsuccessful applicants will receive communication from the MIPLC.
