DAAD-SEARCA Scholarship Programme 2024 ( Fully Funded)

DAAD’s partnership with SEARCA started in school year 1975-1976 through a support to the Center’s graduate scholarship program leading to Masters and PhD degrees in agriculture. The first 15 beneficiaries of the DAAD support were graduate students from Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. Ten scholarship recipients pursued their Master’s degree, while five pursued their PhD.

As of Academic Year 2023/2024, DAAD and SEARCA have awarded 419 Southeast Asian nationals from Cambodia (19), Indonesia (91), Lao PDR (10), Malaysia (15), Myanmar (30), Philippines (100), Thailand (82), Timor Leste (26), and Vietnam (46). Among the 419 scholarships, 206 pursued their MS, 208 pursued PhD, and 5 enrolled for Non-degree.
