DAAD offers Bi-nationally Supervised Doctoral Degree research grants. These grants are intended to promote PhD degrees at the home university with integrated research phases in Germany. The PhD degrees are supervised both by a university teacher at the home university and an academic mentor at the host institute in Germany- Sandwich model. Based on this flexible, multi-phase funding system, doctoral candidates start their doctoral degree in their home country but subsequently spend research periods in Germany. The doctorate is completed in the native country under the guidance of the German academic consultant.

Duration: not more than two years; Grants are initially for 12 months; during the stays at home university, the grant will be interrupted.
