DAAD - Study Scholarship (Music, Visual Arts, Performing Arts)
November

http://www.daad.org/?p=47209

Study Scholarships are awarded to highly-qualified graduating seniors. Those who have received an undergraduate degree of all disciplines may apply for the DAAD Study Scholarship for a year of independent study or a full Master's degree program at a German university. Columbia University nominates 2-5 candidates each year. Fulbright applicants wishing to go to Germany will be considered for the DAAD fellowship but must fill out the DAAD application as well. Over the past five years 10 Columbia students have received this award.

  • Applicants are requested to have a well-defined study project that makes a stay in Germany essential. Preference will be given to applicants who have been invited by a faculty member at a German university to study at a particular university department.
  • Applicants in the arts, humanities and social sciences should have a good command of German.

One of the largest and most competitive scholarship programs in the nation, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Graduate Scholarship provides awards of up to $50,000 per year for up to six years of study to deserving low-income college seniors and recent college graduates (who graduated within the past five years).

The amount and duration of the Foundation’s awards vary, based on factors that include cost of graduate education and other scholarships received. Approximately 1,000 students are nominated for the program each year, with approximately 50 receiving the Foundation’s financial assistance to attend the nation’s top graduate and professional schools.

A review panel of distinguished faculty and admissions professionals judge the nominees using criteria including academic achievement and critical thinking ability, financial need, will to succeed, and a breadth of interest and activities.

Students interested in the program must be nominated by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Faculty Representative at their school, and may not apply directly to the Foundation. Each college or university may nominate up to two students to be considered for the Graduate Scholarship.
