The DAAD scholarships for master’s studies at the University for Peace – UPEACE aim to foster strong and internationally oriented higher education systems in Central America with the ability to contribute to sustainable development.

To this end, scholarships for master’s or doctoral studies related to development are awarded to individuals who plan to pursue a career in teaching and/or research at a higher education institution in Central America.

The DAAD will endeavor to transfer/pay you the first monthly payment as quickly as possible after your arrival / after the beginning of your scholarship. The processing of the first transfer of funds may take some time, especially if you can set up your bank account only after your arrival in the destination country.

In order to cover the expenses that arise until you receive the first payment of the scholarship, we recommend that you take an economic reserve with you.

Please note that the travel allowance for fellows within the region will only be transferred together with the first fellowship fee, i.e. after arrival in the host country.
The scholarship will be paid directly into the scholarship recipient’s bank account. Further details will be announced after admission to the scholarship program in the Award Letter.

As part of the In-Region Scholarship Program, the DAAD offers scholarships for Master’s studies.

The program is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and targets top university staff, without neglecting the public sector’s demand for academically trained staff.

The target group for the scholarships is graduates with a first academic degree (Bachelor or Licentiate) if applying for a Master’s program, in a country other than their home country. In-Region Scholarships are intended for students who wish to participate in a study program in a country in their home region.

ABOUT THE AGENCIES INVOLVED

The granting of scholarships will be subject to the provision of funds and the signing of the Affiliation Agreement between the DAAD and the University for the Peace.

DURATION

The duration of the master’s program is generally 18 months and usually starts in August 2022
