The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has been offering the "Hilde Domin Program" scholarship program with funding from the Federal Foreign Office (AA). It supports doctoral candidates at risk worldwide who are denied access to education in their country of origin. It is intended to offer candidates the opportunity to begin or continue their research in Germany. The doctoral candidates nominated and selected are enrolled in departments or research institutions of their personal choice and individual qualifications and receive a scholarship that covers the necessary costs of the research stay.
