This program serves to strengthen the internationalization of the educational experience for scholars, host institutions, and students by welcoming educators from North America to university campuses in Germany for guest lectureships. The advent of international degree programs, as well as the distinguished traditional curricula at German universities, Fachhochschulen, and arts colleges, provide myriad opportunities for professors from Canada and the United States to contribute their topical expertise and teaching methods.
The lack of restrictions on disciplines and subject matter makes this one of DAAD’s most dynamic programs; and it follows that courses may be taught in English, French, or German.
This program is open to highly qualified scholars in all disciplines who hold a doctorate or other terminal degree, and have an affiliation with a higher education institution. Exceptionally talented experts in their field who are not full-time educators have also been considered.
As the applicant, the German host institution receives the DAAD funding.
Visiting Professors are paid by the host institution according to standard salary rates for civil servants and university faculty in Germany. Travel subsidies range from €925-€1875 depending on which region you travel from to Germany, and additional allowances for luggage and health insurance can be made. Funding is available for periods of three months to two years.
Candidates must secure an invitation from a German host institution prior to application for funding, and teach courses integrated into the regular curriculum.
