Grants for University Lecturers and Academics The DAAD provides funding for international university lecturers and researchers. The programme focuses primarily on shorter periods of research which allow academics to share their experiences and build networks with colleagues abroad. Gaining an insight into a different higher education and research system is not only fascinating but in many cases can also be a source of valuable impetus and experiences. The German academic Exchange Service (DAAD) provides funding for university lecturers and researchers from abroad who wish to teach, research and engage in further education in Germany.
