Reception at the German Embassy on the occasion of awarding DAAD scholarships 2015

On May 18th 2015, the awarding of DAAD’s scholarships took place at the German Embassy. Scholarship holders joining different programmes such as EPOS (Development-Related Postgraduate Courses), CSLA (Civil Society Leadership Award), Ethio-German Home Grown PhD or the reinvitation programme, have been invited to celebrate their success and to be appreciated for the excellent work they have done.

Ambassador Joachim Schmidt warmly welcomed the future scholarship holders at his residence in Addis Ababa. In his speech, he put an emphasis on the further meaning of each scholarship and especially the DAAD network which will be a lifelong companion. Moreover, the very good relations and the importance of them between German higher education institutions and Ethiopian universities have been pointed out to be a good basis for upcoming times and further cooperation.

Each programme and scholarship is offering the chance to go to Germany for a little while and gain new experiences considering both individual education and career as well as sharing knowledge from both sides.
