The Commission for the Archaeology of Non-European Cultures (KAAK) awards the KAAK scholarship to non-German pre-doctoral scientists trained in other university structures. Applicants need to hold a university degree from their home country qualifying them for a profession. The scholarship supports the holder for a 6- or 12-months stay at the commission in Bonn. It is equivalent to a continuous training scholarship in Germany.
The commission issues calls for application for the KAAK scholarship once a year, depending on availability.
