Applicants must submit a statement of motivation explaining why they are interested in attending a particular postgraduate course with reference to their current employment.
e) Application formalities:
If you have no private financial resources or cannot obtain a scholarship from your government, company or an international organisation, you may apply for a DAAD scholarship - either full or partial. DAAD application forms are available from the German Embassies, the DAAD offices abroad, directly from the University or on the DAAD website.

must be submitted via the German
Embassy. Applicants from the People's Republic of China
are asked to submit an APS Certificate,
as well as 2 address labels written in Chinese characters with their application documents.
Please be sure to address applications sent to the DAAD directly to DAAD Section 431!
DAAD Section 431 confirms all applications received for the postgraduate courses via e-mail to the applicant. Sending a complete application with no missing documents is a definite advantage. Later submission of belated, individual documents should be addressed directly to the postgraduate course, not to the DAAD.
Applications sent via e-mail to the DAAD cannot be considered during the selection process.
Applicants are asked to state whether they are able to pay for cost of living expenses and their studies in Germany themselves or whether they can only complete the postgraduate course with financial support from a DAAD scholarship. Qualified applicants for whom self-financing is possible, have a good chance of being accepted by a postgraduate course.
Scholarships cannot be awarded without the official DAAD application form. Many
courses, however, have their own forms, which must be submitted in addition to the DAAD
application form (see details under course description).
f) Application deadlines for DAAD-scholarships:
