In 2019, the DAAD Information Centre Accra  organized two PhD proposal writing workshops in Accra and Kumasi. These workshops are aimed at prospective PhD candidates to fine-tune their PhD proposals for a successful doctoral programme application.

About the Workshop

Participants at the workshop are coached by seasoned researchers and other DAAD and Germany alumni who have successfully completed their research stays in Germany. These workshops, an initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research are also aimed at introducing participants to the vast research landscape of Germany, available funding opportunities as well as ‘how to find a research supervisor’. Interested participants who have attained a masters degree were invited to attend.

Attendance is free-of-charge, however, prior registration was mandatory.

The 2020 edition of the PhD Proposal Writing Workshops is planned for 19th to 21st August in Accra and 26th to 28th August in Kumasi.

I was blessed to have been part of last year's PhD Proposal Writing Workshop. I learnt a lot not only about writing great proposals but also about how to find a PhD opportunity, how to get the attention of a potential supervisor and how to prepare for and conduct yourself during a PhD study. I then joined the whatsapp platform that was formed from the group afterwards. On this platform, Dr. Richard Blay, one of the facilitators and a former DAAD scholar posted a PhD opportunity in my area. With the knowledge gained, I developed a new proposal and applied. I am so happy to say that I have been successful and have been given the PhD position with a DAAD scholarship. I am immensely grateful. I will greatly encourage everybody to take part in this programme, especially because it is at no cost to you but offers such tremendous benefits. The PhD proposal workshop was an awesome opportunity for me.
