DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) is ­inviting applications for master ­scholarships in public policy and good governance. It is worth 750 euros ( Rs. 52,000) per month.
The ­scholarship also includes health insurance in Germany. It grants an appropriate travel allowance as well as a study and research ­subsidy and in applicable cases rent subsidies and/or family allowances. DAAD-scholarship holders are exempt from tuition fees.
