Grants and Scholarships
CGES offers a number of grants for students and faculty to sponsor research and travel to Germany and Europe. Deadlines are usually in the Spring semester, but if you have questions during the year, do not hesitate to contact us!

We recommend that you apply both to the CGES Research and Travel Award and the Max Kade Travel Grant. However, you will only receive funding from one of the two awarding bodies.

The DAAD
The DAAD "Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst", is the premier exchange organization for students studying in Germany and for Germans to study abroad.  They offer a variety of scholarships, grants and support for Undergraduates, Graduates, PhDs and visting Scholars.
