The application period for 2019 is now closed and we thank all applicants for their interest in the scholarship program. Applications now are under review the successful candidates will be announced in December.
The collected data will be stored until 31.12.2025. The official end date of the project is 31.12.2020. The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) requires the data collected to be stored for a further 5 years in the General Auxiliary Terms and Conditions for Grants for Project Funding (ANBest-P) under item 6.5. However, since the CENIT@EA project is currently in default, its duration will be extended. Therefore, the collected data must be stored longer. An exact date has not yet been set, as the exact duration of the delay is not known at present. The coordinators of the project are reviewing the need to store the collected data in time and before the start of the extension. Data of rejected applicants will be deleted after the second cohort of the programme has been established in order to make it easier for rejected applicants to re-apply for the second cohort and to ensure a reservelist. The exact date for this has not yet been determined due to the delay of the project.
CENIT@EA is committed to ensuring an appropriate distribution of scholarships among students from the East African region by making a fair, transparent and considerate selection of scholarship holders. During the project two (online) selection events for scholarship holders will take place. All these meetings are preceded by the review and evaluation of applications.
Consent of the data subject according to Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a. GDPR.
The provision of personal data is not prescribed by law/contract and is not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. The data subject is also not obliged to provide the personal data.
If it is not possible to provide all the necessary data, it will not be possible to review the data and thus potentially prevent the awarding of a scholarship to this applicant.
There is no automated decision-making in individual cases (including profiling).
Data will be transferred to the following entities outside the European Union:
For the above-mentioned third countries, there is no adequacy decision of the European Commission within the meaning of Art. 47 GDPR and no suitable guarantees within the meaning of Art. 46 GDPR. This means that there is no data protection level in the recipient country comparable to that of the EU and that the bodies involved in the transfer have not provided any special guarantees to compensate for the deficits. The consequence of this is that you, as the data subject, may not be able to enforce your data subject’s rights effectively or at all. Furthermore, the unauthorized processing of your personal data (in particular disclosure to third parties) may result in material and immaterial damage (e.g. identity theft/ fraud, discrimination, financial loss, damage to reputation, etc.).
The following rights shall apply to you as a data subject of the data processing:
