The primary goal of DAAD is to facilitate transatlantic mobility to Germany for US and Canadian scholars, therefore Germany must be a component of your intended academic travel. Funding is awarded on a competitive basis; we consider the academic merit of the individual, the feasibility and quality of the proposal, and the impact of the applicant and application as a whole.

DAAD Short-Term Lectureships Programme is financial support for the process of hosting German professors and lecturers for short-term teaching engagements at universities in North America. 

It aims to promote activity in specialized fields, help fill curricular gaps, or act as a stimulus for teaching and research. And by facilitating teaching, German educators who spearhead developments in pedagogy or a particular discipline share their knowledge, skills, and experiences with students and faculty on campuses in the United States and Canada.

  •  Open to all disciplines for lectureships in duration of four weeks to six months.
