The DAAD awards funding to Sub-Saharan African students for Master or PhD degrees in their home country or in another Sub-Saharan African country outside their home country. These In-Region scholarships lead to mobility of researchers between Sub-Saharan African countries and capacity building at African universities.
DAAD In-Region scholarship holders are eligible for exciting funding opportunities in addition to the scholarship they have received for their full-time Master or PhD degree in Sub-Saharan Africa. They may choose to apply for DAAD funding for a Short-Term Research Visit of 2 – 6 months to Germany and/or attend one of six summer schools on offer in Germany during their funding period with the DAAD. They are thus able to gain experience and network in African countries as well as in Germany.
DAAD In-Region scholarships are generally awarded for specific fields of study at different universities. Find information on scholarship opportunities on the DAAD database:
