We aim at promoting the idea of help to self-help management. Empowering people means that we support committed, well-educated and skilled people, who over a long period of time have worked towards the development of East Africa. The foundation’s approach is to support young academics to achieve this goal.
We would like to offer young Ethiopians with an academic diploma the opportunity to join a special PhD program in Germany. After successfully completing the PhD program, the young scholars return to Ethiopia and contribute to the building of society and the country.
Student Grants for Ethiopian Studies / the Studies of manuscript cultures
The German Ethiopian Foundation awards prizes to B.A. and M.A. grant students at the University of Hamburg. Students with exceptionally high grades will receive grants.
