Kenyan-German Postgraduate Training Programme

Within Sub-Saharan Africa, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) cooperates with several countries in the field of postgraduate training, on basis of individually negotiated cooperation agreements. So-called government scholarships are awarded to qualified junior scientists and university staff for PhD studies, mostly in Germany. In certain programmes, also PhD degrees at the home university or Master‘s studies in Germany can be funded.

The cooperation agreement between the Kenyan Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology and the DAAD was initially concluded in 2010 and renewed with the then responsible Ministry of Education in 2017 for another five years. The National Research Fund of Kenya is assigned to administer the programme. During the first years, up to 20 scholarships were awarded annually. After renewal of the agreement, this quota was increased to an annual intake of up to 30 students. The cooperation agreement has been extended in 2021 for the funding of another three intakes. The current contract duration ends on 30.06.2027.

75 Kenyan students are sponsored under this programme in 2021, with the aim of obtaining their PhD degree in Germany. Since the first intake in 2011 until today, 128 scholarships have been awarded in total, thereof 71 doctoral candidates have successfully completed their PhDs.

DAAD Alumni in Kenya

The DAAD considers the end of a scholarship as the beginning of an active, long-term relationship with its alumni. More than 160 alumni associations worldwide connect alumni with each other and with the DAAD. The alumni associations are very important partners for international exchange and a driving force for local alumni activities. The involvement of the alumni associations plays an important part in the sustainability of the DAAD scholarship programs. Kenya also has an alumni association, the Kenya DAAD Scholars Association (KDSA).

The KDSA is a non-political organization that brings together current and former DAAD scholars who have received sponsorship DAAD for M.Sc and PhD studies, locally and abroad.

The DAAD offers programs for project funding for university collaborations:

More Information: https://www.daad.or.ke/en/find-funding/funding-for-institutional-cooperation/

As part of the project funding, the Center of Excellence for ICT in East Africa (CENIT @ EA) has been at the Nelson Mandela Africa Institute of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) since 2017 in cooperation with GIZ and the Inter-University Council for East Africa funded in Arusha (Tanzania). The aim is to strengthen employment and innovation-related digital skills of young people in the partner countries of the East African Community (EAC). The Master’s program “Embedded and Mobile Systems (MSc EMOS)”, accredited in 2019, addresses the needs of the private and public sectors in Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda for qualified, entrepreneurially-oriented specialists for a digital economy. In 2020, nine out of twenty-four funded people from Burundi received project funding from NM-AIST.

DAAD in Burundi

The DAAD does not have its own presence in Burundi, but works closely with the University of Burundi. It also has an alumni network there.

Baden-Württemberg and Burundi have worked in partnership since the 1980s. In 2014, a partnership agreement based on the development policy guidelines for Baden-Württemberg with Burundi was signed. In this agreement, projects in the fields of forest science, geography and resource management, geosciences and chemistry in higher education are funded. The state of Baden-Württemberg has entrusted the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ) with the bundling and coordination of activities with Burundi, the supervision of projects funded with state funds and the expansion of partnership relationships. The Burundi Competence Center of the Foundation serves to carry out these tasks and act as an interface and service point. The DAAD works closely with this foundation.

 Ethio-German Home Grown PhD Scholarship Programme

Within Sub-Saharan Africa, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) cooperates with several countries in the field of postgraduate training, on basis of individually negotiated cooperation agreements. So-called government scholarships are awarded to qualified junior scientists and university staff for PhD studies, usually in Germany. In certain programmes, also Master‘s studies in Germany or even PhD degrees at the home university can be funded, as it is the case with Ethiopia, for example.

The Ethio-German Home Grown PhD Scholarship Programme was announced for the first time in 2014 through the Ministry of Education (MoE) in the frame of the Engineering Education Capacity Building Programme (EECBP). Per intake, up to 40 scholarships can be awarded to Ethiopian PhD students in the field of engineering. Over a period of three years, six months each are spent in turn for research at a German host university and the Ethiopian home institution, whereby the final PhD degree is to be obtained at the latter.

In April 2015, the first batch of scholarship holders was selected through a bi-national selection panel meeting in Addis Ababa. One year later, 19 PhD students had already returned from their first research stay in Germany. By the end of 2018, 111 and in the middle of 2019, 146 new awards had been granted in the programme and in 2019, the first group of students defended their PhDs in Ethiopia.

Alumni of German universities in Ethiopia

In Ethiopia, there are more than 3.600 DAAD Alumni who were supported either in Germany or in Africa and who today successfully serve in the academic, business and political spheres. Many of them are ideal contacts for anyone interested in pursuing higher education studies or research in Germany.

In 1994 a group of Ethiopians, who had returned home after studying in Germany came up with an idea of forming an association of fellow countrymen educated in Germany and drafted a guideline. The process took a while but, eventually the association was formally registered with the Ethiopian Ministry of Justice and received legal status as “Association of Ethiopians Educated in Germany (AEEG)” in 1997.
