From November 11th to 14th 2018, the University of Oldenburg met up with the DAAD and NM-AIST in Arusha, Tanzania to step forward in the process of preparation for the scholarship application and awarding.
The central objectives of the preparation meeting were the discussion of criteria of admission to NM-AIST, the further development of an advertisement campaign for the project and the estimated date for the call for applications.
Furthermore, we were able to advance in the aspect of opening applications – although students need to be patient for a few more weeks, we are confident to cut the waiting time as short as possible.
In short, the preparation meeting can be called a success in all regards, as current issues, challenges and opportunities were resolved, yielding in new confidence for the project.
