MADM: Selection of the new MADM scholarship holders

Leonie Grunau on the selection process for scholarships in the MADM programme

At the end of 2021, the IEE received almost 700 applications from 92 countries for the new intake of the MA program in Development Management in Bochum and Cape Town, including their respective DAAD scholarships.

After a strict selection process including personal online interviews, the IEE nominated 10 new and promising scholarship holders. Eight students received the DAAD-EPOS scholarship and two are scholarship holders of the South African-German Centre for Development Research, funded by the DAAD. The selected students come from all around the world, namely Afghanistan, Brazil, Egypt, Ghana, Mexico, Myanmar, Nigeria, Peru, the Gambia, and the Philippines.

The new candidates will pursue their master studies in the MADM program for the next 18 months. The Cape Town group has already started the program in May 2022; and in September, the Cape Townian students will meet their fellow students from the Bochum group for the upcoming Summer School in Germany. For the Bochum students, the summer school will be the first part of their studies.

We are optimistic that more students will be granted scholarships by other organizations and look forward to the 2022-2024 cohort.
