How Do I Apply for Further Funding?

Are you being funded by the DAAD with a study scholarship for a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree and your funding programme offers the possibility of further funding? Find out here how to apply.


The status of your initial funding is set to Funding.

You have received a DAAD scholarship for the completion of a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Germany. Additionally, you have received information by the DAAD that your funding programme takes part in a simplified procedure for extending the duration of your scholarship.

Application Procedure

Submitting an Application for Further Funding

  • Once the menu item is expanded, you will see the Confirmation of academic progress.
  • To download the form Confirmation of academic progress, click on the menu item.

Please note:

The Graduate School Scholarship Programme (GSSP) offers different menu items.

You have to download the Annual Progress Report instead of the Confirmation of academic progress. Later, the edited Annual Progress Report has to be uploaded in pdf format under Further Funding – Annual Progress Report.

  • To start the download, click on the download link labelled Download form Confirmation of academic progress.
  • Please click on Next to open a new window.

  • On the second page of the form, you will find instructions on how to proceed with your application and which additional files to submit alongside the Confirmation of academic progress.
  • To upload the document, drag it from the folder on your hard drive into the browser window, and drop it onto the desired field.
    Alternatively, you can click on the + icon next to the desired field. This will allow you to select the file from your hard drive.
    Adding the document is a preparatory step. The final submission of the documents will happen in a subsequent step.

  • To complete the submission of your documents, click on Overview at the end of the page. You will now receive a final listing of the documents that you uploaded.


Files can only be uploaded in pdf format. Please also make sure the pdf files you upload are not encrypted and do not have any commenting restrictions on them. These pdf files cannot be processed in our system, so we would have to ask for the document to be resubmitted. If you cannot remove the restrictions, print out the file and scan it to pdf format.
It is also advisable to check documents which you have already received in pdf format.

  • If you want to edit the document, click on Edit.
  • Click on Send documents to submit your documents.
