The DAAD Short Term Lectureship program facilitates the process of hosting German guest lecturers in North America. Its goal of sharing the talents of highly qualified German scholars with Canadian and US universities aims to promote academic activity in specialized fields, fill curricular gaps, or act as a stimulus for teaching and research. Thus this program is open to all academic disciplines. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed four times a year. They must be received in Bonn at least ten weeks prior in order to be reviewed on a particular date.
