Eligibility

For applicants from Sub-Saharan African countries with an excellent academic record the DRD offers a limited number of scholarships per year. Scholarships are available for full-time students.

Scholarships include monthly allowances of 650 Euro for Master candidates and 900 Euro for PhD candidates plus travel allowances.

Apart from full scholarships for participation in one of the above mentioned programmes a number of mobility scholarships for Master students are available each year. These scholarships are aimed at funding a study period in Germany. During such a study period abroad scholarship holders can participate in a Summer School at Ruhr-Univeristy Bochum, complete an internship with a German organization working in the field related to their studies or they can visit Ruhr-Univeristy Bochum during the completion phase of their Master Thesis for intensive supervision periods.
It is not necessary to apply for mobility scholarships before starting your studies. The application procedure for mobility scholarships will instead be announced to participants of the cooperating programmes.

For further information, please refer to the "scholarships" section and do not hesitate to contact the CRD coordinators at UWC or RUB.

New Publication of CDR Member

Samson Osei, PhD candidate at CDR, published a paper in the Africa Development Bank Evaluation Matters Magazine, titled "Value Addition of Organisational Evaluation".
Basically, the paper argues that evaluation of the organization as a unit of analysis remains a black box as opposed to project and programme evaluation in development evaluation practice.” Thus, a comprehensive evaluation of an organisation as a unit of analysis can help achieve the sustainable development goals. The paper can be accessed here.
