ARISE Scholarships for African Students (How to Apply)

The Africa Regional International Staff/Student Exchange: Food Security and Sustainable Human Wellbeing (ARISE) is a programme designed to provide resources and opportunities for student and staff mobility throughout four regions of Africa, offering support for Masters and Doctoral studies as well as for shorter research and administrative visits between consortium partners. ARISE will offer approximately 100 mobility opportunities in Masters, Doctorate and Staff Mobility Opportunities.

The programme focuses on the fields of Agriculture, Medical Sciences, Engineering and Energy out of a commitment from the consortium to develop African capacity in the area of Food Security and Sustainable Human Well being. This theme was selected in response to the ongoing urgency of meeting the Millennium Development Goals. Rather than offering a broad spectrum of qualifications, each partner has carefully selected those within the ARISE chosen theme.

The Scholarship covers 

  • Roundtrip flight ticket and visa costs (using a preferred travel agent and calculated against direct linear distance)
  • Direct participation costs such as tuition fees, registration fees and service fees where applicable
  • Comprehensive Travel Insurance (Health, Accident and Travel)
  • A monthly subsistence allowance for the mobility period


Type of Mobility Subsistence Allowance Duration
Master €600 Max 24 months
Doctorates €900 Max 36 months
Staff €1000 Max 6 months
