This year's ‘Leadership for Africa’ Scholarship Programme will be available for Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and South Sudan.
More than just a scholarship
The scholarship holders are awarded a scholarship to finance their master’s degree course at a German higher education institution. DAAD also supports them in finding the right degree course and during the enrolment process. The programme furthermore includes an extensive supplementary programme with courses on understanding democracy, the rule of law and sustainable economic and social development. ‘Leadership for Africa’ aims to leverage a German master’s degree and proficiency from the supplementary programme to improve scholarship holders’ career opportunities and enable them to contribute to successful and socially relevant professional development in their home country or another country. Further advice on the programme is offered by the DAAD regional office in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.
