The DAAD is a partner of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan and the administrator of a number of  Higher Education Commission funded foreign scholarship schemes in Germany.

HEC Pakistan

Please keep checking the website of Higher Education Commission Pakistan for new scholarship announcements.

Around 300 Higher Education Commission funded Pakistani students are currently doing their Master or their PhD at German universities – always attended by the experienced Pakistan team at the DAAD head office in Bonn. They arrange intensive language courses for HEC scholars, run orientation seminars and help students settle in.

And after their return to Pakistan we stay in touch and assist HEC/DAAD alumni in maintaining and strengthening their linkages to their German host university by a number of funding programmes. Please see our Alumni Services section of our website.
