Hi, 

Yes, I had the same status.

Also I contacted with Razi from DAAD, she said the result will be announced end of February/ beginning of March 2019.

Did Razi say anything about the interview? 

I spoke with the DAAD rep too, and she told me that it is not clear now whether we will be interview or not this year. Also, she informed me that the results will be announced in May...

😕 May!?

No, she did not say anything about interview and I don't know anything about it. 

The DAAD office in Afghanistan is closed so if we have an interview it will be on Skype.

Yes, May 🤔 and I am also wondering why May, if people from other countries are notified earlier.

I think that if they decide to conduct an interview for us, it will be in January. In the previous years it was the thing that German professors conducted face-to-face interviews for all MA applicants in January. I think that this year it will be the same, and this will apply for a PhD applicants too (if they invite us for an interview). 

Why is your DAAD office closed? Is it because of the holidays, or it is not working there?

Hi, everyone. Anyone applying for the DAAD Research Grant for Ph.D. I applied last year without any luck so I'm trying my luck this year, again. Three weeks ago I got an email from the DAAD portal asking for my whereabouts in the months of January and February. I have already started my Ph.D. in Germany so of course, I told him I will be in Germany. He then told me that if I will be in my home country (Ghana) there will be an organized interview for all applicants. Since I told him I will be in Germany during the period I was informed then that my application will be decided based on the submitted documents in Bonn and no interview is required. 

When I applied last year from Ghana, there was no such message or interview. Anyone also in this situation?

Hi, Gyedu,

For me it's the first year when I submit my application for a DAAD Research Grant for PhD. I applied from my home country.

I think that you shouldn't worry about the interview, as you already started your research in Germany. The DAAD office in my country informed me that sometimes they conduct interviews for applicants and sometimes they don't. It might depend on many factors, such as a number of applicants, etc. 

What Application status do you have on the portal? Mine is still "Application submitted", and it worries me a lot...

DAAD and Germany embassy is closed because of a suicide bombing on 31 May 2017 and it remains closed until further notice.

Hi, I applied for the DAAD Research Grant for PhD 2019/20 for first time. 
Why your last year application had rejected? 

Students who apply from their home country have more chances, I heard this form a professor.

Got it. This might be a reason why they are sending your paper docs to Bonn. In our case, professors get paper applications when they arrive for conducting interviews.

Were you asked to submit paper copies via post? I did that last year but this year I was told not to and only submit a letter of recommendation via post.
