The EAC Scholarship Programme is an initiative of the East African Community (EAC) and the Federal Republic of Germany.
The project begun in 2018 when the EAC Secretariat and Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with KfW (German Development Bank) geared
towards the training of students within the EAC Region.
This Project aims at creating future change agents, who identify themselves with the integration agenda of the EAC and are willing to share economic and development-oriented expert knowledge.
The goal of this initiative is to contribute towards training leaders that will foster the EAC Regional integration. This goal will be partly achieved through the establishment of academic collaboration between universities/institutions within the EAC Region, by encouraging students to study in countries other than their own.
In order to achieve these impacts, the project offers a comprehensive package including scholarships for Master’s programmes, internships, mentoring, networking events and further leadership training activities.
The scholarship will support Master’s students in
v) Technology and
vi) Business Science programmes.
The students are required to apply to study in another EAC country (not their country of origin). Women and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
This Programme will include a minimum of 30% female students and a special consideration will be given to Burundian and South Sudanese female applicants.
