The Hertie School of Governance is an independent institution from the DAAD, therefore it is necessary to submit an application to both institutions. The DAAD should be contacted directly regarding scholarship inquires.
After applying for the DAAD-PPGG scholarship directly at the local DAAD office, interested applicants must apply separately for admission to the Master of Public Policy (MPP) Programme at the Hertie School of Governance.
The DAAD office sends the Hertie School the files of all applicants who have named the Hertie School as a "Preferred University". In November, the Hertie School will select, together with DAAD representatives, up to five PPGG fellows for the program.
Those not selected as PPGG fellows are still eligible for regular admission in the MPP programme at the Hertie School and are eligible to receive a Hertie School Scholarship. We therefore strongly recommend that PPGG candidates also directly apply to the MPP at the Hertie School.
If you have any questions about the MPP application process, please contact the MPP Team at mpp-applications(at)hertie-school.org. For further information regarding the DAAD-PPGG scholarship, please contact your DAAD regional office or visit the respective DAAD website.
