DAAD: Masters in Public Policy & Good Governance
The programme is designed to further qualify future leaders in politics, law, economics and administration according to the principles of Good Governance and to prepare them in a praxis-oriented course for their professional life. The programme offers very good graduates with a first university degree the chance to obtain a Master’s degree in disciplines that are of special relevance for the social, political and economic development of their home country. With the knowledge and experience acquired in Germany the scholarship holders should later contribute to the establishment of democratically oriented economic and social systems aimed at overcoming social tensions. In addition, the training at German institutions of higher education should especially qualify the scholarship holders as partners in political and eco-nomic 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 programme is targeted at very well qualified graduates with a first university degree (Bachelor or equivalent), who in the future want to actively contribute to the social and eco-nomic development of their home countries. The scholarships are offered to both young graduates without professional experience and to mid-career professionals. The scholarships are for specific Master courses at a German institution of higher education (Please see the call for applications for the list of courses).
Before taking up their Master studies, the scholarship holders will be placed in German courses in Germany for about 6 months (this also applies to scholarship holders in Master courses taught in English). Recipients of the scholarship must be able to travel to Germany from the beginning of April 2012, in order to commence the German language course.
DAAD pays a monthly scholarship rate of 750 €. The scholarship also includes contributions to health insurance in Germany. In addition, DAAD grants an appropriate travel allowance as well as a study and research subsidy and in applicable cases rent subsidies and / or family allowances.
Application documents may be downloaded from: http://www.daad.de/deutschland/foerderung/ausschreibungen/16930.en.html
Completed applications must be submitted to the DAAD Information Centre Johannesburg with a duplicate copy by no later than 31 July 2011.
