Germany awards 300 Scholarships to Garissa Students

Up to 300 students of Garissa University College who survived the deadly attack on 2 April 2015 have been awarded scholarships for the continuation of their studies during a ceremony held at Rivatex Ltd., Eldoret.

The scholarships are awarded by the Regional Office for Africa of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and financed by the German Ministry for Development. The programme aims at helping students to find a way back to normal life. In selected cases, the DAAD will also cover expenses for medical and counselling services.

"With this offer, we want to show our solidarity with the Kenyan students", DAAD President Professor Margret Wintermantel said. "Access to a solid education is a strong weapon against any form of terrorism. Many of the Garissa students hail from humble backgrounds. In many cases, they are the first ones in their families or villages to ever attend university. We want to strongly encourage them to hold on to their dreams for their future, despite the horrors they went through."

Students of Garissa University College continue their studies at Moi University since May. The scholarship programme will run for one year. It will cover tuition fees, a monthly allowance and accommodation costs.

The beneficiaries of the scholarship programme were jointly selected by the DAAD, Moi University and the Commission for University Education (CUE) based on a needs assessment. During the scholarship period, the scholarship holders will be assisted by DAAD Alumni from the Kenya DAAD Scholars’ Association (KDSA).
