DAAD Study Scholarships 2019/2020 – Postgraduate Studies in the Field of Music-See Application Guide Welcome to Stevo Portal

Application Deadline: October 15th 2019

DAAD scholarships offer graduates the opportunity to continue their education in Germany with a postgraduate or continuing course of study. The scholarships also promote the exchange of experience and networking amongst colleagues.


Foreign applicants who have gained a first university degree in the field of Music at the latest by the time they commence their scholarship-supported study programme; if this is not possible, they should have at least exhausted all the training options available for their instrument in their country of origin.

In this study programme, you can complete

  • a Master’s degree/postgraduate degree leading to a final qualification, or
  • a complementary course that does not lead to a final qualification (not an undergraduate course) at a state German college of music of your choice.
  • Postgraduate studies are possible in the so-called 2nd cycle (usually a four-semester Master’s degree) or a 3rd cycle which usually takes place in two semesters (concert examination, masterclass or PhD in an artistic subject).
  • This programme only funds projects in the artistic field. Other DAAD scholarship programmes are available for applicants from the field of musicology or music education or musicians with a scientific project.

Duration of the funding

Master’s degree programme:

  • Between 10 and 24 months depending on the length of the chosen study programme or study project
  • Start: usually from 1st October, or earlier if a language course is taken prior to the study programme
  • The
    scholarships are awarded for the duration of the standard period of
    study for the chosen study programme (up to a maximum of 24 months). To
    receive further funding after the first year of study for 2-year
    courses, proof of academic achievements thus far should indicate that
    the study programme can be successfully completed within the standard
    period of study. Therefore, a reference of the main subject teacher will
    be required.
  • Applicants who are already in Germany in the first
    year of a postgraduate course at the time of application may apply for
    funding for their second year of study.
  • An extension of the
    scholarship is possible if changing to a new stage in studies is
    intended (usually from a Master’s degree to an advanced programme of
    study such as a concert exam or master class). For particularly
    qualified candidates, it is possible to apply for an extension for a
    concert exam for up to two years.

Complementary studies not leading to a final qualification:

  • One academic year. In individual cases, the scholarship can be extended on request
  • Start: usually on 1st October, or earlier if a language course is taken prior to the study programme


  • A monthly payment of 850 euros
  • Travel allowance
  • One-off study allowance
  • Payments towards health, accident and personal liability insurance cover

Under certain circumstances, scholarship holders may receive the following additional benefits:

  • Monthly rent subsidy
  • Monthly allowance for accompanying members of family

To enable scholarship holders to learn German in preparation for their stay in the country, DAAD offers the following services:

  • Payment of course fees for the online language course “Deutsch-Uni Online (DUO)” (www.deutsch-uni.com) for six months after receipt of the Scholarship Award Letter
  • if
    necessary: Language course (2, 4 or 6 months) before the start of the
    study visit; the DAAD decides whether to fund participation and for how
    long depending on German language skills and project. Participation in a
    language course is compulsory if the language of instruction or working
    language at the German host institution is German.
  • Allowance for a personally chosen German language course during the scholarship period
  • Reimbursement
    of the fees for the TestDaF test which has either been taken in the
    home country after receipt of the Scholarship Award Letter or in Germany
    before the end of the funding period
  • As an alternative to the
    TestDaF for scholarship holders who have taken a language course
    beforehand: the fee for a DSH examination taken during the scholarship
    period may be reimbursed.


A special DAAD committee made up of professors from German
colleges of music makes the final decision about scholarships in the
field of music.
