The DAAD awards the German government funding to Sub-Saharan African students for full-time Master or PhD degrees in their home country or in another Sub-Saharan African country as part of its In-Country/In-Region Scholarship Programme. The Programme promotes the mobility of researchers between Sub-Saharan African countries and capacity building at Sub-Saharan African universities. Scholarships are granted for development-related Master or doctoral studies for individuals who plan to pursue a career in teaching and / or research at a higher education institution in Sub-Saharan Africa. Scholarship holders are eligible to apply for a short-term research visit to Germany, y for one of six interdisciplinary summer schools:


The target group for scholarships are graduates and postgraduates from Sub-Saharan Africa with a first academic degree if applying for a Master’s programme, or with a Master’s degree if applying for a doctoral programme who want to pursue Master’s or PhD courses in their home country (so called In-Country scholarships) or in another Sub-Saharan African country (In-Region scholarships). Female applicants and candidates from less privileged regions or groups are especially encouraged to participate in the programme. First, applicants submit their scholarship application to the host institution. After a pre-selection has been conducted, shortlisted applicants will be asked to submit their application again via the DAAD portal for the final selection.


Funding is provided for the usual duration of a course – generally, up to two years for Masters and up to three years for the PhD degree programmes. This includes Monthly allowance, Study and research allowance, Printing allowance, Tuition fees, Travel allowance and Health insurance.


Please find below the list of degree programmes funded within this scholarship programme in the regions West and Central Africa, Eastern Africa and Southern Africa, including the links to the respective calls for applications.
