Call for Applications for academic institutions: In-Country/In-Region Scholarships for Postgraduates

Application deadline: March 20, 2015

DAAD Regional Office for Africa is happy to announce the renewal and expansion of its In-Country/In-Region Scholarship Programme for Postgraduates in Eastern Africa.

With this programme, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), DAAD seeks to strengthen and expand its regional network of high-quality academic partners offering development-related Master and/or PhD studies which are geared towards capacity building of teaching and research staff.

DAAD is therefore looking for academic institutions which can provide postgraduates with the capacity of contributing to sustainable development. Successful institutions will be supported with a quota of Master and/or doctoral scholarships.

Universities, research institutes and research networks from member states of the East African Community as well as Ethiopia and South Sudan are welcome to apply. Institutions in these countries which previously received DAAD funds are encouraged to apply for renewed admission to the programme.
