From the 1st to the 4th Cohort, the CENIT@EA project awarded full scholarships. All recipients hold a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or similar and currently pursue a M.Sc. degree in Embedded and Mobile Systems at NM-AIST.

CENIT@EA seeks for a balanced distribution of scholarships among the Partner Statesof the East African Community (EAC) by assuring a fair, transparent and considerate selection of scholarship beneficiaries in line with official DAAD regulations. The evaluation and selection of the candidates was done by an international Scholarship Selection Committee together with the Admissions Committee and the School of CoCSE at NM-AIST in order to enhance capacity building and promote institutional development.

The scholarships awarded by the project included a monthly living allowance, rent assistance and financial assistance for studies and research, and also covered the tuition fees applied at NM-AIST.
