Are you preparing an application for the master’s scholarship programme “Leadership for Africa programme (Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal)”? The following information might be useful:

  • Successful applicants will start the Master’s programme in Germany in the winter semester (October) 2022;
  • Final admission to the targeted Master’s programme should be secured between May and September 2022, as universities process applications for the nearest semester;
  • However, a previous admission (in 2020 or 2021) would indicate that you have a good chance of being admitted again for the winter semester 2022. You can therefore attach proof of such an admission to your application;
  • If you do not have proof of previous admission, you should provide the jury with evidence that you are sufficiently well informed about your three chosen Master’s programmes! For example, if you do not yet meet all the requirements for final admission, clearly indicate what you are missing, when and how you intend to achieve it by October 2022;
  • You are expected to contact the programme(s) you are interested in, e.g. to find out about the application procedure (do not do this if the university’s website already provides enough information about it!), or to find out whether your degree will be accepted;
  • You can submit a copy of your valid identity document (CNI or receipt) instead of the passport;
  • You can use the “Higher Education Compass” to find all the master’s degree programmes offered by German universities. Then find out more about each programme on the website of the university offering it;
  • Also inform yourself thoroughly about the “Leadership for Africa (Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Senegal)” Master scholarship programme before submitting your application through the DAAD application portal
  • Find some instructions on how to download your application form from your account on the application portal: Step 1, Step 2

Also consult FAQs on the scholarship programme “Leadership for Africa” on the website of the DAAD.
