Call for Applications – Enchancing Academic Qualifications in Teaching and Research in Global Health

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), with financing provided by the Federal Ministry
for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), supports academic qualification measures for
individuals from developing countries who participate in the In-Country / In-Region Programme. Every
year the DAAD awards more than 700 BMZ-funded scholarships to junior researchers from Africa, the
Middle East, Latin America, South East Asia and South Asia to help finance their Master’s or PhD
programmes in their home country or region. These programmes generally have a strong developmentrelated
focus so that after graduation these trained professionals will be prepared to address problems
on a global scale.

A further aim of this programme is to improve the teaching and research conditions
in the partner countries in the long term and strengthen their higher educational structures on location.
As an additional offer for scholarship holders of the In-Country / In-Region Programme, the DAAD
cooperates with German universities in organising a range of summer schools in Germany. These
three- to four-week measures give the students and young researchers an opportunity to take part in a
high-class academic training in a selected subject area, meet and exchange with peers from across the
world, and make their own, unique experiences of the German society, culture and history.

In this context, the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health (HIGH) at Heidelberg University, is inviting
applications to its Summer School “Enhancing Academic Qualifications in Teaching and Research in
Global Health”, which will include an online phase from July 3rd-21th, 2023 and an on-site phase in
Heidelberg from August 8th- 31st, 2023.
