The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is granting seven research fellowships to young Kenyan scientists who want to pursue their PhDs at a German university.
Funding is available for up to 3.5 years. Applicants should have completed their masters degree not more than six years before the time of application. They can complete their PhDs at a German university or at a non-university research institute in the country.
The grants include a monthly allowance, a flat-rate travel allowance, two field research phases in the applicant’s home country, as well as language courses in Nairobi and in Germany.
