In-Country/ In-Region Scholarships for Postgraduates

The objective of this scholarship programme is to promote the development of university teaching staff in universities and build capacity for staff in the public sector through postgraduate training in selected postgraduate study programmes at the institutions listed below.

This programme strongly encourages mobility of East Africans within the East Africa region. We therefore strongly recommend applicants to apply to institutions outside their home countries.

Applicants should apply to the institution of their choice for both the admission and the DAAD scholarship, using the contacts and the procedure prescribed at the institution’s website. The institutions have set their own deadlines that need to be followed. All applicants will be notified about the outcome of their application. Only shortlisted candidates will get access to the DAAD Online Portal to finalize the scholarship application.

Value of Scholarship:

  • University tuition fees
  • research allowance
  • monthly stipend
  • travel allowance (where applicable)
  • health insurance (where applicable)
  • and the possibility of a study visit of up to 6 months to Germany within the period of the scholarship.
