In-Region Scholarships for Postgraduate Studies for Students from Yemen in Jordan • DAAD


The programme aims at fostering strong, internationally oriented higher education systems in Jordan with the capacity to contribute to sustainable development. To this end, scholarships are granted for development-related Master studies for individuals who plan to pursue a career in teaching and/or research at a higher education institution in Yemen.

By training future academic and professional leaders, the programme contributes to the following long-term impacts:
  • Qualified professionals’ involvement in the solution of development-related problems in Yemen
  • Graduates strengthening education and research in Yemen
  • Structural strengthening and regional networking of partner institutions and partner universities

To achieve these long-term impacts, the following outcomes have been formulated as programme objectives:
Programme objective 1: Graduates have qualified to take over responsible positions in their, or for their, region of origin.
Programme objective 2: The participation of women and underprivileged groups is reinforced.
Programme objective 3: Organizational, financial and personal capacities of partner institutions are strengthened.

As part of the "In-Country/In-Region Scholarship Programme“, DAAD offers scholarships for Master studies.

Duration of the funding

The duration of the Master programme is generally two years and is usually starting in September of the following year.
Please note that the maximum duration of the scholarship is based on the time that is left until the scholarship holder has reached the regular period of studies in that programme; i.e., if you apply for a DAAD scholarship starting in your second year of studies of a two-year programme, the maximum duration of the scholarship will be one year.
The standard period of study and the start date are based on the agreement between the host university and the DAAD.


The scholarship covers:
  • Tuition fees (Master Thesis Track)*** per semester
  • Monthly scholarship payment: 570 EUR
  • Travel allowance at the beginning and the end of your scholarship (proof of arrival must be provided): 530 EUR

*** Tuition fees will be paid per semester directly to your university, including payments towards your health insurance. Please note that in some cases not all fees and costs that are mentioned on the official fee structure of the host institution can be covered by DAAD in full, e.g. if the agreement with the funding organisation prevents us from funding certain items in the fee structure or if items that are included in the fees are supposed to be covered through the individual scholarship benefits. DAAD will transfer the fees directly to the host institution.

The DAAD will endeavour to transfer the first monthly payment to your bank account as quickly as possible after the beginning of your scholarship. Processing the first transfer of funds may take some time.

Payments generally cannot be made prior of the scholarship start date and the commencement of studies at the host institution. Furthermore, no additional benefits that are not listed in this call for applications can be granted.


All applicants apply via the DAAD online portal not later than the deadline.
After formal evaluation of the DAAD regarding the completeness and correctness of the applications, an independent selection committee will evaluate the formally correct applications. The DAAD reserves the right of final selection.
