TRECCAfrica Exchange Call 2013

It is time for students studying at Africa’s premier universities to start doing what students in other parts of the world have been doing for almost three decades: take up a period of exchange study at a partner university.

TRECCAfrica is an Intra-ACP Nyerere scholarship programmes which supports African Masters and Doctoral students to spend a period abroad as part of their study programme. Any student who is currently enrolled for a Master’s or Doctoral programme in any recognised sub-Sahara African university may apply.

Support Africa’s internationalisation by encouraging your students and friends to apply for a TRECCAfrica Exchange Bursary to study for six to 12 months at one of these universities:

·         University of Ghana
·         Stellenbosch University, South Africa
·         Mekelle University, Ethiopia
·         University of Nairobi, Kenya
·         University of Nigeria-Nsukka
·         University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

With the support of the Intra-ACP Academic Mobility Scheme, the TRECCAfrica exchange bursary covers your return flight ticket and visa costs, a stipend of €600 per month for Masters or €900 per month for Doctoral students, student insurance, and you will pay no tuition fees at the host university.
