DAAD/MIPLC Scholarship for Students from Developing Countries

Applications are currently ongoing for the DAAD/MIPLC Postgraduate Scholarship for International Students from Developing Countries.

MIPLC is a part of the DAAD’s scholarship program for “Development-Related Postgraduate Courses”. The LL.M. program is a non-consecutive “program of further study” (in German: “weiterbildender Studiengang”). Under German law, such programs are designed for professionals and are thus open only to applicants with a minimum of professional experience gained after the completion of the first university or college degree. All applicants to MIPLC are therefore required to have at least one year of full-time professional experience.


Scholarship recipients will get

  • A full MIPLC fee waiver
  • A monthly stipend of EUR 850
  • Payments towards health, accident, and liability insurance coverage in Germany
  • A travel allowance, unless these costs are covered by the home country or by another funding source
  • A study and research allowance
  • A mandatory two-month German course before the start of the MIPLC LL.M. program


To qualify for the DAAD scholarship, applicants meet the following requirements in addition to the MIPLC admission criteria:
