Scholarship Opportunities for Africans to study Cooperative research in Germany

For Africans wishing to come study in Germany, this is a worthwhile opportunity for them to secure a scholarship if they are interested in Cooperative research. Here’s how:

German colonial history is a rich field of research in Germany and especially so, the countries colonised by Germany. In a new programme that aims to foster international and interdisciplinary cooperation and dialogue between different perspectives within this field there are upcoming scholarship opportunities for those who qualify.

The German Cabinet Committee for the fight against racism and right wing extremism, the Federal Foreign Office, with the support of the DAAD, is initiating the research programme “German Colonial Rule. Scholarship Programme for Cooperative Research.”

Participating researchers are invited to focus in particular on the role and actions of the Foreign Office as well as other German government institutions in the colonial territories.
