The KAS sur-place scholarship is a local scholarship offered by the KAS Office Ethiopia/AU in the form of financial support to Ethiopians who are enrolled in and are pursuing post-graduate studies in universities in Ethiopia and who show excellence in their academic performance and in society.
The phrase “sur-place” is French and means “on site” and the scholarship is named as such to signify that it is a scholarship offered to students on site where they are studying, in this case Ethiopia. Find out more information below. We especially encourage women and persons with disabilities to apply. The scholarship is offered once a year. The application phase for the new scholarship year usually starts in September.
In general, there is no age limit and all academic disciplines are eligible to apply. However, the scholarships are primarily intended for young Ethiopians who have finished their Bachelor’s degree and who are entering or are already enrolled into a Master’s program in an Ethiopian university, or to those who are at the start of their professional careers in Ethiopia and wish to take a course to specialize their skills. It should be noted that students pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree, a PhD, or studies abroad are not supported by this scholarship. This scholarship only supports Ethiopian students conducting a Master’s program in Ethiopia.
It is important to note that the scholarship program is only open to Ethiopians who are pursuing studies or projects in Ethiopia (“sur place”) and who share and champion KAS’ values of Democracy, Rule of Law, Social Market Economy, and Human Rights.
