Call for Applications: Funds for Alumni activities in East Africa in 2024

DAAD Nairobi invites former DAAD scholarship holders from the East Africa region who are planning small Alumni activities such as workshops, conferences or seminars scheduled between April and October 2024 to submit their applications for funding.

What can be funded:

  • Events that promote the scientific/ thematic exchange of Alumni
  • Seminars that contribute to the professional training of Alumni
  • Seminars for returning Alumni

Subsidies can also be granted for bi- and multi-lateral alumni events that bring together different alumni groups and/or include German alumni, for example North-South or regional events. The DAAD is particularly interested in supporting events that contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Networking and activities beyond the scope of the event are particularly welcome. 

  • Grant size: up to 10,000 EUR (for international events, in justifiably exceptional cases, the grant can go up to 20,000 EUR)
  • Eligibility: Only former scholarship holders of DAAD (having received individual DAAD funding for at least 3 months) and Alumni associations can apply. AT LEAST HALF of your event’s participants must be DAAD Alumni (current scholarship holders can attend, but don’t count as Alumni).
  • Format: The event can be physical, virtual or hybrid. Participants from regions beyond East Africa are encouraged to join virtually.
  • Application deadline: Monday, 12 February 2024.

Documents to be submitted (find attached) to the DAAD Nairobi office via

A web seminar on Alumni funding in general and funding for small Alumni events in particular will take place on Thursday, 18 January 2024, at 2 pm EAT. We recommend that anyone interested in applying to attend.
