Testimonials of former scholarship holders:
My name is Layan Jadallah, I major in Computer Science and I was awarded a DAAD scholarship for my German year program. I am currently an exchange student at the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen (THM) in Gießen. It is true that there is only so much one can learn within the four walls of their university, and being in Germany has allowed me to explore outside those walls. It hasn’t been a year yet, but I can confidently say that the experiences these few months have brought me have shaped me into a much more well-rounded individual, and I definitely look forward to what the rest of the year will bring my way in terms of all the different opportunities.
I am currently studying International Accounting at the German Jordanian University; I was given the opportunity to expand my knowledge and gain experience in the University of Cyprus through my Erasmus semester. This semester has not only expanded my social circle but it has given me what I can call a second family in Cyprus through the times we spent together. I have increased my cultural awareness and communication skills in a way that will certainly serve me for many years to come. It is really hard to put all the amazing experiences and heartfelt memories into words but this incredible semester taught me lessons I will never forget and gave me memories that I will always look back fondly on.
he International Office is happy to introduce to you one of our graduate students who is a scholarship holder of the IPS-Program:
My name is Mohammad Khader; I finished my studies at the German Jordanian University in
German and English for Business and Communication. I am currently doing my master's studies in
European Studies at the Heinrich Heine Universität Düsseldorf. In September 2021, I received the
International Parliamentary Scholarship for the Arab countries (IPS). The program is aimed at
politically engaged young people from the Arab region interested in the German parliamentary
system and who would like to play an active role in promoting core democratic values in their home
During an intensive four-week program, I had the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of
the German parliamentary system and political decision-making processes. The four-week program
also included lectures on German political history, the functioning of its parliamentary system, the
electoral system, and the right to vote. Workshops and seminars were also organized on press
freedom and ethic publication standards, freedom of religion, human rights and minority issues.
This opportunity also enabled me to attend the electoral campaign of the German
parliamentary elections of 2021, in the electoral district of Wiesloch in Baden Württemberg, with MP
Lars Castellucci (SPD), who is a member of the Committee on Internal Affairs and member of
Committee on the Affairs of the European Union. During the internship, I was able to witness the
functioning of a successful electoral campaign. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to meet other
members of the SPD party and the SPD council group in Wiesloch.
This experience was highly informative as I had the chance to learn a lot about representative
democracy and the parliamentary system of the Federal Republic of Germany. Moreover, experience
the German elections closely. Therefore I urge all highly motivated individuals to apply for the
International Parliamentary Scholarship. This program will help you play an active and responsible
role in shaping the democratic future of your country.
