Helmut-Schmidt-Programme (Masters Scholarships for Public Policy and Good Governance)

The Masters programme Public Economics, Law and Politics at Leuphana Graduate School was selected to be a continuous partner institution for the scholarship program 'Public Policy and Good Governance' (PPGG) by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

The Programme

The programme is designed to further qualify future leaders in politics, law, economics and administration according to the principles of Good Governance and to prepare them in a praxis-oriented course for their professional life. The program offers outstanding graduates with a first university degree the chance to obtain a Masters degree in disciplines that are of special relevance for the social, political and economic development of their home country. With the knowledge and experience acquired in Germany the scholarship holders should later contribute to the establishment of democratically oriented economic and social systems in their home country aimed at overcoming social tensions. In addition, the training at German institutions of higher education should especially qualify the scholarship holders as partners in political and economic cooperation with Germany. With this programme, DAAD intends to contribute to the support of Good Governance and civil society structures in selected partner countries and regions. 

The scholarship holders will study in groups and be offered special tutoring at their host institutions.
