To all our scholarship holders and Alumni in East Africa:

The Corona pandemic has changed our daily lives tremendously. It affects your research and studies as well. In these unprecedented times, we want to stay strong as a community of academics and share our experiences:

How exactly have the new restrictions to movement and physical distancing affected your daily work? Here, we are not only thinking of negative consequences, but rather the surprising advantages, e.g. new collaborations, time to finally finish that research paper, the joy you discovered in teaching online? Does your work, directly or indirectly, contribute to helping us find a way out of the Corona crisis?
We are collecting ideas for short stories to be published on our website. Send a message with your contacts to, and we will get back to you for more information.

Thank you!
