The DAAD has been granting scholarships to Cameroonians for more than 50 years. The DAAD scholarships are principally granted to doctorate students, researchers and University lecturers. The main criterion for scholarship award is academic excellence.
For doctorate and post-doctorate studies, scholarships are offered in all series.This is the main focus of the scholarship offer for Cameroon.
At the Master’s level, scholarships are exclusively granted in domains such as public administration, good governance and conflict studies.
Moreover, there are Master’s programmes for young graduates who work in domains that deal with development. Many programmes are opened to Cameroonians having a four years' bachelor degree who want to contribute to the development of Cameroon after their return from Germany.
Unfortunately the DAAD does not offer any scholarship to undergraduate students.
