    My name is Tesfahun Hatia from Ethiopia. I was born and grew up in very remote area where still there is no access to electricity, roads, transportation, and a secondary school. I have heart to reach out for these people in whatever means possible.

    I am so interested to pursue my PhD in the international Graduate School of African Studies in Germany. I have B.A in Theological Studies majoring in Translation and Literacy in 2002 in Addis Ababa. I also did my M.A. in Leadership studies in Nairobi Kenya. I have a dream to be a nation-wide change leader in my country, in future, and I strongly wish to pursue my PhD in Political Science, or Public Administration, or International relations, or communication. I also have 13+years experiences in training, editor-in-chief, dean of students, and some more.

    I would be very glad if I get chance to receive your scholarship.

    Dear sir
    am writing to express my interest to study Phd in development economics. Iam a Tanzanian with 32 years old. currently am working as a senior economist in the Ministry of East african Cooperation. As my country is now involved in economic integratin with the Rest of East African Countries and my Ministry is Responsible for cordinating The integration process. in respect of my country, so i want to study in this particular area to investigate wthether there is implication of economic integration to Growth. as the available liturature did not show vivedly whether there is this link in the context of Developing Countyries. Iam seeking for a scholarship to cover tuition fees and living expevses. Yes i do agree that EU has managed to register economic growth through regional blocks as a new engine of growth but there is no avaolable evidence in the context Developing countries to support that. However there is a rush of every country to join Regional blocks.so my study will seek to brige this gape. Am looking forward for your continued cooperation.
