DAAD 2022-2023 Master Scholarships for Master Students from Sub-Saharan Africa Fleeing the War in Ukraine

The DAAD has launched a special programme for Sub-Saharan African students whose studies are interrupted due to the war against Ukraine to continue/complete their studies in their home country or region.

The Scholarship programme for Master students from Sub-Saharan Africa fleeing the war against Ukraine is a subprogramme of the In-Country/In-Region Scholarship programme. It is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and  Development and managed by the German Academic Exchange Service.

Programme Objectives

The goal of the programme is to provide Master scholarships to students who are nationals of a Sub-Saharan African country and whose Master studies are interrupted because of the war in Ukraine. Scholarship holders are given the opportunity to continue their academic career at a higher education institution in their home country or within their home region (in Sub-Saharan-Africa). 

The Scholarship Programme supports full-time higher education Master’s studies leading to a degree. Students may:

  1. either continue their Master studies in the original study field started in Ukraine, or
  2. if the original study field is not available, then in the Master programme that is the closest match for the original, or
  3. continue their studies in another Master’s programme of which they fulfil the admission requirements based on previous, recognised studies.

Medical programmes that generally last longer than 2 years are not eligible. Whereas medical related fields such as public health or nursery programmes that provide a distinction between master’s and bachelor’s degrees are eligible to be chosen within this scholarship programme.
