Scholarship for Ethiopia

Scholarship for Ethiopian Students and students from Ethiopia to study in Germany

Within the Master of Public Policy (MPP) at the Brandt School a specialisation in Conflict Studies and Management (CSM) is offered as a selective track. The MPP is a two-year, practice-oriented degree programme taught in English and designed for students seeking a career in the public or non-profit sector. During their course of studies, students learn to understand the theoretical underpinnings of political processes and develop critical, analytical and practical abilities. For this purpose, the core curriculum combines quantitative and qualitative approaches to public policy-analysis with elements dedicated to the advancement of personal skills and systematic practical training.

The specialisation in CSM provides students with a sound theoretical basis for analysing contemporary conflicts and developing policy responses to them. Furthermore, it conveys practical skills to assess policy interventions critically and develop approaches to conflict resolution.

Thus, in line with the special focus of a public policy school, the Brandt School looks at conflict studies and management with a special interest in how policy-making and public policy as a research perspective (discipline) need to be re-thought in the context of conflict management and post-conflict reconstruction efforts. In particular, the role of governments, international actors and NGOs as policy-makers in conflict areas, fragile states and war-torn countries will be considered in the CSMP.

The MPP specialising in CSM is designed for students with an academic background in international relations, political sciences and the wider social or human sciences with a proven interest or practical experience in the fields of post-conflict-management and reconstruction, peace building, institutional development and governance, regional security (esp. developing frameworks for regional security architectures), conflict resolution or terrorism.

The MPP specialising in CSM

  • Provides a coherent overview of conflict studies and conflict management theory and practice;
  • Provides different theoretical frameworks that may be used to organise historical knowledge and interpret contemporary policy-making;
  • Examines theories and models of state-, institution-, and peace-building, and evaluates attempts to manage, resolve, or transform conflicts;
  • Provides an ambitious example of the manner in which the multi-disciplinary approach of public policy associated with conflict studies can overcome the limitations of studying conflict through any single disciplinary lens.

Master’s Scholarships

The Master’s Scholarships are awarded for the normal duration of the Master’s course (2 years) with an additional German language course of generally 6 months before the beginning of studies. All scholarships will initially be awarded for a maximum of 12 months and can be extended for another year upon application.

DAAD pays a monthly scholarship rate of currently 750 €. The scholarship also includes contributions to health insurance in Germany. In addition, DAAD grants an appropriate travel allowance as well as a study and research subsidy and in applicable cases rent subsidies and / or family allowances.

The scholarship holders will be exempted from tuition fees. They will be offered special tutoring at the Brandt School, and there is the possibility of further activities.

The awards are given for one year and, provided that the academic program is longer than one year, may be renewed for a second consecutive year or a portion thereof, subject to satisfactory academic performance in the first year and the availability of funds.

The JJ/WBGSP scholarship only supplements, and does not duplicate, any other source of financial support/fellowship the scholar might have.
