Grants and Scholarships

CGES offers a number of grants for students and faculty to support research and travel to Germany and Europe. Deadlines are usually in the spring semester. Due to Covid-19, we have paused our travel grants for 2020, but hope to bring the programs back in 2021. If you have questions about travel plans in 2020 or early 2021, do not hesitate to contact us.

Once we are able to offer the programs again, we recommend that you apply both to the CGES Research and Travel Award and the Max Kade Travel Grant.


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 visiting scholars.
