CENIT@EA seeks a balanced distribution of scholarship activities. The Project Coordinator together with the Admissions Committee is responsible for guaranteeing a balanced distribution of candidates among the School of Computational and Communication Sciences and Engineering (CoCSE) at the NM-AIST. Through a selection process, all partners together ensure capacity building and institutional development.
In this sense, NM-AIST has to assess the relevance of each scholarship. In addition to the work of the Selection Committee, each academic partner has an important role in the selection procedure. Each institution should evaluate the potential candidates supported by the Admissions Committee.

The project supports students by providing scholarships for the Master's program “Embedded and Mobile Systems” (EMoS). CENIT@EA is dedicated to guarantee a reasonable distribution of scholarships among students from the East African Region by conducting a fair, transparent and considerate selection of grantees in line with official DAAD regulations.

The scholarships awarded by the project not only cover the monthly allowance, rent assistance, financial assistance for studies and research, and writing and printing costs, but also the tuition fees applied at NM-AIST. In case that additional funding can be obtained by the project, the top 5 students of each cohort will engage in a short term exchange (four weeks, internship at a partner institution) to Germany.
