Winners of DAAD-Ruforum PhD scholarships announced

Germany’s academic exchange service DAAD and Ruforum, a network of African agricultural research institutions, announced nine winners of their joint PhD scholarship programme last week.

The programme, launched in 2011, offers East African lecturers the ability to upgrade their skills with a PhD qualification while remaining on the continent.  This year’s winners takes the programme’s entire intake of doctoral trainees to 29.

Four of the nine will undertake their doctoral studies at Tanzania’s Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology. Two Ugandans, a Tanzanian, and a Kenyan will study life sciences at the Arusha-based organisation.
