The University of Central Asia (UCA) in partnership with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), is pleased to announce that the details of the joint scholarship programme can now be found on the DAAD website.


The scholarships are for students wishing to pursue their Doctoral studies in the following fields: Computer Science, Engineering, Communications and Media, Business Management, Earth and Environmental Sciences, or Economics. The fields reflect the taught majors and research interests in the School of Arts & Sciences, the Graduate School of Development and the School of Professional and Continuing Education.

Applicants from Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan are strongly encouraged to apply. Students from Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and northern Pakistan are also eligible. 

While the application and selection process for these scholarship programmes may vary based on discipline and institution of choice, all applicants are required to meet DAAD’s eligibility criteria and eventually confirm admission at a German university. 

For further details on admission please refer to the instructions on the DAAD website.

The final DAAD submission deadline for applications is February 1, 2021.

However, the proof of academic supervision can be submitted by the 9th of March

These scholarships are part of UCA’s ongoing Central Asian Faculty Development Programme (CAFDP) designed to ensure that scholars from the region are strongly represented in UCA’s faculty. Scholarship recipients will be required to work for four years at the University of Central Asia after the completion of their studies in Germany. 

This partnership between UCA and DAAD builds on the quality and is aimed to enhance the academic quality of UCA’s future faculty.
