DAAD MIPLC Scholarships for Students from Developing Countries in Germany
MIPLC students bring to the learning community a high level of excellence expressed in a rich diversity of backgrounds; accomplishments, talents, and interests. Students in past classes have consistently found this special atmosphere to be very conducive to their studies—and great fun, too.
The Munich Intellectual Property Law Center (MIPLC) is a part of the DAAD’s scholarship program for “Development-Related Postgraduate Courses”. The Munich Intellectual Law Center (MIPLC) offers students these scholarships through the DAAD scholarship program.
DAAD MIPLC Scholarship Benefits
Scholarship recipients will get:
- A full MIPLC fee waiver
- A monthly stipend of EUR 850
- Payments towards health, accident and liability insurance coverage in Germany
- A travel allowance, unless these costs are covered by the home country or by another funding source
- A study and research allowance
- A mandatory two-month German course before the start of the MIPLC LL.M. program (August and September, in Munich or another German city).
Since the DAAD scholarship includes a full fee waiver, you must apply simultaneously for MIPLC financial help (cf. section 2a).
Please also refer to the brochure for “Development-Related Postgraduate Courses” for more information. Where MIPLC and DAAD requirements differ, the stricter one applies. You are eligible for the DAAD scholarship if you meet the following requirements besides the MIPLC admission criteria:
- You are from a developing country (according to the OECD DAC list) and have not been living outside your home country (or another developing country) for more than the past two years.
- Must hold at least a four-year Bachelor’s degree (or a three-year Bachelor’s degree plus a further degree); completed with above-average results.
- You received your latest degree only six years before your application.
- You have at least two years of full-time professional experience gained in a public authority or a state or private company in a developing country. To meet this requirement, it is sufficient if you have completed the two years by February of the year in which you intend to start your studies at MIPLC. Scientific university staff and academics are not the core target group of this program and are therefore considered only in exceptional cases.
Please refer to the Application Instructions for detailed information.
Complete applications will go through an evaluation process for admission on a rolling basis. From all admitted applicants, we will put together a shortlist of candidates; who will be invited for a video conference interview taking place in January or February. Based on these interviews, the MIPLC will pre-select the scholars and the DAAD will take the final decision in early March.
You have to apply more than a year in advance, i.e. between June 1 and October 15 for the following academic year.
