DAAD - scholarships for young professionals from developing countries

This post was shared with us by (& thanks to) Willy.

As the Faculty of Forest and Environmental Sciences does not give away scholarships, candidates should apply for funding from other institutions

Please note: Finding a scholarship is a time-consuming business. Requirements and application dates vary, but often an extensive application package is required and deadlines may be up to one year before you start your course. Please consider this when applying!
