ATSAF Academy

Under the umbrella of the ATSAF Academy two scholarship programs are currently being carried out:

PhD Research Scholarship (ACINAR - Academy for International Agricultural Research)

MSc Career Exploration Scholarship (JST - Junior Scientists Tandems)

These projects are commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and are carried out by ATSAF e.V. on behalf of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. In cooperation with professors from German universities and CGIAR++ centers, ATSAF e.V. has established the ATSAF Academy via the ACINAR- and JST-project.

The aim of the ATSAF Academy is to involve PhD and MSc students from German universities and from universities of OECD-DAC Partner countries in CGIAR++ research projects and in this way strengthen the links between German universities and international, development-oriented agricultural research.

The ATSAF Academy offers a scientific support program for its scholars in the form of courses and seminars.
