After a pre-selection and shortlisting has been conducted by the host institution and DAAD, shortlisted applicants will be forwarded to a selection committee for the final selection. Please note that the admission application procedure may differ between the regions and host institutions. The specific application instructions regarding each host institution are linked below in the respective calls for applications.

 Application requirements

Please review the call for applications of the degree programme you wish to apply for to see the specific requirements. Generally, the minimum requirements are:

  • Successful completion of a three-year Bachelor degree (Master’s applicants) or a two-year Master degree (PhD applicants) with above average results (at least 2nd class upper division or equivalent);
  • Completion of last university degree should not be more than 6 years ago at the time of application
  • Clear demonstration of motivation and strong commitment;
  • Thorough knowledge of the language of instruction;
  • National or permanent resident of a Sub-Saharan African country

Explanatory note: Please note that the scholarship applicant is responsible for ensuring to apply for admission at the partner host university by the due date as indicated in the call for applications for the relevant degree programme. Each host institution might have additional requirements for admission that you will have to adhere to when you apply for the scholarship.
