As part of the “In-Country/In-Region Scholarship Programme”, in which more than 50 African universities and university networks participate and which annually supports almost 1.000 African postgraduates, DAAD in close collaboration with the GIZ assisted programme “Strengthening Capacities for Land Governance in Africa (SLGA)” is able to offer scholarships for postgraduate studies at PLAAS. The programme is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) within the framework of the special initiative “One World – No Hunger” and is implemented in cooperation with the African Land Policy Initiative (LPI) and the World Bank. The scholarships aim at young candidates, mid-career professionals, researchers and university staff development in the first line, without neglecting other public sector demand of academically trained personnel.

DAAD is offering up to 3 scholarships for a Master programme and up to 3 scholarships for a PhD programme in the degree course listed above.
