DAAD: The German Academic Exchange Service

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is one of the most important funding organizations, supporting the international exchange of students and scholars. Sources of financing come from federal funding by various ministries, mostly by the German Federal Foreign Office. Along with scholarships the DAAD supports the internationalization of German universities, promotes and strengthens the German language abroad and advises decision makers in education and development policy. http://www.daad.de/portrait/wer-wir-sind/kurzportrait/08940.en.html
