The Re-invitation Program helps the DAAD to maintain contacts with its former 1-year scholarship holders and with former scholarship holders who have studied in East Germany for at least 1 year. Former scholarship holders meeting these requirements can apply for re-invitation to Germany to complete a research or work project at a state higher education institution or non-university research institute.
Applications for the re-invitation program can only be submitted by former 1-year scholarship holders who have been back in their home country for at least 3 years. The most important selection criterion is a convincing and well-planned research or work project to be completed during the stay in Germany. The content and schedule must have been coordinated and agreed with an academic supervisor or research collaboration partner at the German host institution in question. Written confirmation of the planned cooperation project, including express reference to the applicant's project, must be included with the application. The application must include proof of a workplace being provided at the host institute. DAAD support for a research or work stay can only be awarded once in any 3 year period.
Depending on the applicant's academic status, the monthly award will amount to 1,840 Euros for assistant lecturers, assistant professors and young lecturers, and 1,990 Euros for professors (in exceptions, 2,240 Euros). In addition to these payments, the DAAD will cover travel costs for applicants from certain countries, unless these costs are covered by the home country or by another funding source. Depending on the applicant's work schedule, the research stay can last between 1 and 3 months.
