DAAD – VIC Research Funding Scheme

The Victoria-Germany Bilateral Academic Exchange Program, delivered by veski and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), is designed to improve international relations and encourage bilateral 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. Funding cannot be used to fund lecture tours or visits to congresses.

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 reviews applications based on academic achievements and the research project.

Application Process:

STEP 1: Victorian applicants must submit an initial registration via veskidelivered.awardsplatform.com

STEP 2: Following your registration, you will receive an email containing the link to complete the full application via the DAAD portal.

Applications are due by 15 October 2021.
