It is my pleasure to inform you that the call for Applications for the
2021 In-Country/In-Region Scholarship Programme for Eastern Africa is

This programme is open to individual Master and PhD students in the
Sub-Saharan Africa region who wish to study either in their home
countries or at selected host institutions in other African countries.

institutions in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia and Sudan. More
