Our members in around 40 cities are actively involved in regional groups on a voluntary basis. DAAD scholarship holders and alumni can get to know one another and network at events and on excursions. We also provide unusual perspectives and a glimpse behind the scenes.
“We are stunned and shocked by Russia’s attack on Ukraine. As DAAD alumni, we stand for international exchange, for getting to know new cultures and for peaceful coexistence. The appeal for help by DAAD alumnus Igor O. Girka from Kharkiv shows the brutality and violence of the Russian rulers in their invasion of a sovereign state, leading to unimaginable suffering. Our deep solidarity goes out to all Ukrainians at this difficult time – including those who are studying in Germany on a DAAD scholarship and fear for their country. We are glad that many Russians think the same way and have the courage to condemn the war of aggression in clear words. We know: Wars know no winners, only losers.
The DAAD circle of friends and its regional groups are available as contact persons for the DAAD scholarship holders affected.”
