What is the Scholarship Ambassador Programme?

Through the Scholarship Ambassador Programme Africademics trains volunteers to become scholarship advisors and mentors. Training is provided via an online course comprising virtual lectures, case studies and additional activities aimed at providing participants with the tools and knowledge to find and apply for scholarships, and to support others in doing so. The 2021 cohort, with 30 participants from ten different countries, graduated in October and is now offering personal support for scholarship seekers and applicants from across Africa.

The next cohort will be recruited in early 2022 and will consist of participants from both Germany and Africa. The focus of the 2022 round will be specifically on training volunteers to advise African youth on scholarships and educational opportunities available in Germany. The programme will be implemented in collaboration with local and international partners who support Africademics with their expertise and resources.

How can I get involved?

In preparation for the 2022 ‘Study in Germany’ edition of the Scholarship Ambassador Programme, we are calling on African students, graduates and early career researchers who have studied or done research in Germany to join our programme! Share your story and experience, become a guest speaker at one of our webinars, or apply to participate in the Ambassador training yourself!
