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.
  • Candidates must secure an invitation from a German host institution prior to application for funding, and teach courses integrated into the regular curriculum.
  • Exceptionally talented experts in their field who are not full-time educators have also been considered.
