In cooperation with the German Chemical Society, the DAAD supports short-term research stays for North American and British students at German universities and research institutions in the field of chemistry. The foreign students have completed at least the second year of their undergraduate studies at an American, Canadian or British university and are supposed to support doctoral students in their experimental work as part of a 2-3 month stay in Germany.
