Joining TropHEE on a scholarship

If you need a scholarship for attending the TropHEE M.Sc. course, please apply for a scholarship first. The TropHEE M.Sc. course is part of the DAAD scholarship program with emphasis on problems of developing and transforming countries.

Postgraduate Courses for Professionals with Relevance to Developing Countries

All prerequisites and requirements for a DAAD scholarship are listed on the following website:

Prerequisites and Requirements for Scholarships for Postgraduate Courses with Special Relevance to Developing Countries

The number of scholarships from DAAD is limited, however, and competition is high. Please check carefully if you fulfill the DAAD requirements. These include: (i) you have a B.Sc. certificate above average; (ii) you do not hold a master title so far; (iii) you can prove at least 2 years of practical experience outside the university, primarily in the field of water; and (iv) you intend to go back to your home country where you preferably already have a guaranteed job position.

Deadlines refer to the year before students intend to start the program. Please note that your application should be addressed to the TropHEE office:

Technische Universitaet Darmstadt
Applied Geosciences – TropHEE Office
Schnittspahnstr. 9
64287 Darmstadt

The final decision on the allocation of scholarships is made by the DAAD. Please note that the selection process at all postgraduate courses supported by the DAAD will last from the end of October until February.

After positive response from the DAAD you must still apply online with TU Darmstadt as described here. This may take another 3 months.

If you need a scholarship but do not fit into DAAD requirements, please contact our office at .

Further scholarship awarding agencies are listed on the TropHEE website at Scholarship.
