Hi Ashlon  and Amara, I hope you guys have applied for it, do you have any clue about when the results will be out? Also, which all colleges are you applying for?

Yeah I did apply, I dont remember the exact dates, I am guessing Feb or March.

I applied for March-T, Typlogy at TU Berlin and ITECH at University of Stuttgart. Just gave two options, and the others weren't in line with my interest. What about you?

Hope everyone is satisfied with results (if they are already published). Any tips about the portfolio, just besides the official guidelines? I know it's hard to get liked by the commission:)

Hello, All, 

I will be applying for the DAAD scholarship too but why it shows me that 

Im referring to this one: 

https://www2.daad.de/deutschland/stipendium/datenbank/en/21148-scholarship-database/?origin=44&status=3&subjectGrps=&daad=&q=&page=1&detail=57135744#bewerbung

"Currently you cannot apply for this programme. Please note the application deadline specified under the Application procedure tab."

any ideas?

I assume that the application portal for year 2021-2022 has not yet been opened, and the deadline for 2020-2021 was September 2019 and the final results (I think) are not yet out. I would wait until summer and check back then :)

Hey guys,

I am applying this years DAAD scholarship, and I'm working on my portolio. The guideline says "max 20 DIN A4 pages". I am confused about the printing style. I don't know if I should print single 20 pages (without anything on the back) or double sided 10 pages which is also 20 pages. Also it is supposed to be bounded portfolio as the guideline says. I would really appreciate if you have any ideas :)

Hi! Did you get any information about the portfolio? I hope the process is going well :)

selinsevim

Hey! Unfortunately not :( Do you have any idea on that?

 · 
nkja

when I saw the information, I thought that it will be double sided 10 pages. Also I am confused about the statement "at least three drafts on a scale appropriate to the object (ground plan, layout, elevation and perspective, on separate sheets)" I guess for one project we will present at least three drafts on separate pages.

 · 
selinsevim

I guess I might go for double sided 10 pages considering it’ll be binded- like a booklet. It doesn’t make sense to make single 20 pages when in that format. Yeah..I got confused by that statement too..but I guess they want
us to show various drawings for each project

Hello guys! Has anyone been accepted to this scholarship? I am also applying to ITECH at University of Stuttgart

Hey guys!

I have a question about the portfolio: are we only allowed one image/draft per page? I have a couple of sections that I usually group together and to have them spread out like that just seems like a waste of space

Sep 7, 20 8:37 pm  · 
 · 
selinsevim

to be honest I’ve used more than one images for one sheet as long as it’s readable and not too complicated. Because it occurred to me it’s waste of space when you can show more than one thing and it looks quite alright.

has anybody figured out what they mean by "at least three drafts on a scale appropriate to the object (ground plan, layout, elevation and perspective, on separate sheets)"?

My current portfolio consists of different layouts on each page like plan + render + small text etc. Should I change this to single plan/section/elevation on a single sheet?

Sep 9, 20 1:56 pm  ·

xxxhaan

Yeah, it's not clear to me either but I think the safest bet would be to put at least most of them in separate sheets​.

​Hi, did you figure out what does this statement really means? and how strict is this requirement?

 ·

Hello everyone, i seek clarification on this note i found on the website.

"Current note: Due to the current pandemic situation, applications can be submitted on application dates that lie in 2020 without application reference.".

Does this mean a complete application can be made this year without submitting the reference form and letter?

Sep 20, 20 10:21 am  · 
 · 
kwakkwak

yep. I called DAAD and they said due to Covid situation applicants don't have to submit references this year

 · 
dayzzy

All right. Thanks for the clarification. Have you completed your application yet?

 · 
kwakkwak

nope. I'm slightly confused about their portfolio requirements, did you put every single plan on a single sheet with nothing else on the sheet?

 · 
dayzzy

I'm still confused too. However, I plan to assign each drawing to a sheet i.e separate drawing type on separate sheets. But i may include two drawings of the same type on a sheet i.e two plans on a sheet. 

I won't combine floor plan and section/any other on the same sheet.

Hello Im planning to apply to several master programs in Germany for the academic year of 2021-2022. Is the deadline of 30 September 2020 for the DAAD scholarship for people applying for 2021? because this seems too early since some application for Universities hasn't even opened yet, so Im confused.

Sep 21, 20 6:55 am  · 
 · 
kwakkwak

yep that's how it is. You need to submit/mail the DAAD application long before the university application portals even open .

 · 
STSH

Thank you! But oh man I had no idea it was so early, that means I have 10 days left, I really hope I can get my application in in time

 · 
STSH

Is it true we have to have two years of work experience to be eligible for the scholarship? I've seen this mentioned online, but its not on the requirements on the official scholarship page.

Sep 22, 20 6:02 am  ·

dayzzy

It's not specified in the requirements so I'm quite sure the information you got is wrong. Work experience can only improve your chances.. nothing more than that.

hey guys,

Can you tell me what to upload in these 2 categories :

List of work samples ? does it mean the portfolio or only list of projects.

course profile ? i have no idea what this means.

thanks in advance guys.

Sep 24, 20 7:11 am  · 
 · 
kwakkwak

maybe the detailed information about the courses

 · 
STSH

I think the list of work samples is the list they asked us to submit with the details of the work in the portfolio: "List of all submitted plans/design with info (i.e. size, date of creation, place, etc.)"

Hello everyone, i want to confirm if the address below is truly the address to send physical documents to. Thanks.


Section ST32 - Africa

Hey, I had a question regarding one of the sections we need to fill in in the application form, the short description of research/study/work project, is a description of our previous work, like for example the bachelor graduation project? or do they mean research work we are interested in doing? 

Sep 25, 20 11:03 am  ·

dayzzy

Indicate both to be on a safer safe. You can highlight your past research and link it with what you would want to work on during your master's degree

Btw 30 sept means the documents to be sent by post should reach them by 30 or the courier should be dated before 30 sept ?
Sep 26, 20 7:56 am  ·

kwakkwak

It has to be dated the 30th of September at the latest

found it. they have messed up the numbers. Cannot find the two year experience scholarship listed here? Will it be done through professors of university?

STSH

Urgent: I'm a little confused by the things we need to send by post, so one of them is the portfolio which is clear, and then they ask for: "with the printed "cover sheet for the application", the "application summary" generated in the portal and the report"

so just to make sure added to portfolio we must submit: 1) cover sheet for application 2) application summary and 3) the report we filled in, correct?

where do we get the cover sheet for application and the application summary though? are they generated only after we click "send documents" on the portal?

thank you for anyone who can clarify please. 

Sep 28, 20 6:14 am  · 
 · 
kwakkwak

once you upload your documents the system will generate the summary which consists of your application form and everything you uploaded to the portal. The "cover sheet for the application" is the first page of the summary, and I'm pretty sure you only need to send that exact sheet instead of the whole summary, along with your portfolio.

Thank you, that makes sense!
