Financial support

International MA students

The Centre for African Studies Basel ZASB is currently unable to award its own bursaries and scholarships and there is virtually no scholarship programme catering to MA students. However, each year we are committed to supporting one excellent graduate from an African university in applying for a scholarship of the Basel Commission for Young Scholars from Developing Countries. If you are an outstanding graduate, are supported by your home institution and have prepared an original research proposal proving your high calibre, please get in touch with the executive office of the Centre.

Research Trips Abroad

Short stays abroad for data collection or internships are a recommended feature of our training programmes. The executive office of the Centre offers advice and assistance to students and doctoral candidates at the Centre in raising the necessary funds.

Support for students in need

The University's Student Welfare Office offers information about financing and budget planning.
