Second round of German academic exchange funding programme launching in April
Collaboration between ENZ and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) continues to grow with the launch of the programme’s second round next month.
ENZ and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) will launch the second round of the German academic exchange funding programme on 5 April after the programme’s successful first round.
Funding will be available to researchers at higher education institutions in Germany and New Zealand. ENZ will fund early-career academics from New Zealand universities and Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology to travel to Germany, specifically students who are close to completing their PhD and academics who completed their PhD in the last five years.
With the objective of growing the number of applications in 2023, ENZ has decided to move to a model of providing funding up to NZ$12,500 per year for up to two years, without the need for applicants to show any other sources of funding.
The German academic exchange programme is the result of the signing of a Programmes for Project-Related Personal Exchange (PPP) arrangement between ENZ and DAAD in November 2021 to strengthen academic relations between New Zealand and Germany and promote complementary research activities.
ENZ’s Market Development Manager – Europe, Adina Stoye, said the programme had done much to grow academic collaboration between New Zealand and Germany through the partnership with DAAD, which is the world’s largest funding organisation for the international exchange of students and researchers.
“We are pleased with the success of the first round of the programme and are looking forward to seeing more applications for the second round launching in April.
“As an incentive to encourage more participation, applicants are no longer required to show any other sources of funding,” Stoye said.
Ahead of the programme’s launch, ENZ has organised an online information session on Tuesday 4 April at 7pm NZT (9 am CEST).
