DAAD – VIC Research Funding Scheme
The DAAD – VIC Research Funding Scheme is a part of the Victoria-Germany Bilateral Academic Exchange Program, delivered by veski and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). It is designed to improve international relations and encourage reciprocal research cooperation with German universities.
Who can apply?
Applications are invited from academics and scientists who have completed a doctoral degree and work at a university in Victoria. The program is open to applicants across all fields.
What can be funded?
Funding can support onsite research, from 14 days to three months, at state or state-recognised institutions of higher education or non-university research institutes in Germany.
Academics from Victoria must be working at a Victorian university on a genuinely collaborative research project with German partners, not furthering their individual research in Germany (or vice versa).
The length of the grant is determined by the selection committee and depends on the project in question and the applicant’s work schedule. The grant is non-renewable.
How is the selection made?
An independent selection committee, managed by veski reviews applications based on academic achievements and the proposed research project.
