TRECCAfrica scholarships for Master’s programmes announced
The TRECCAfrica University Consortium has published a call for applications for prospective African Master’s students on its website at www.treccafrica.com. TRECCAfrica is Transdisciplinary Training for Resource Efficiency and Climate Change Adaptation in Africa; understandably shortened.
Up to 32 full-degree two-year Master’s scholarships will be awarded to applicants to enrol in a number of highly sought-after master’s programmes related to sustainability and environment. The scholarships cover travel, tuition and a living allowance of €600 (about KSh66,000) per month for 24 months.
Applications close on 30 April 2012 for studies commencing from September 2012. A second call for studies commencing in 2013 will be launched towards the end of 2012.
The consortium consists of the universities of Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Ghana, Mekelle (Ethiopia), Nairobi (Kenya), Nigeria-Nsukka and Stellenbosch (South Africa). Their programme is called Transdisciplinary Training for Resource Efficiency and Climate Change Adaptation in Africa – or TRECCAfrica, for short.
The list of Master’s programmes presented by each of these institutions range across subjects such as sustainable development, environmental management, renewable energy, food science and technology, natural resource assessment, climate and society, biotechnology, agro-ecology, soil physics, microbiology and veterinary medicine.
The scholarships are for study outside the student’s home country. Interested students can visit the TRECCAfrica website to see who can apply and what Master’s programmes are on offer.
The scholarships are made possible with the support of the European Commission in partnership with the African Union Commission through the Intra-ACP Academic Mobility Scheme (Mwalimu Nyerere Scholarship).
According to the coordinator, Dr Christoff Pauw, TRECCAfrica students at the six universities will be offered unique opportunities to engage with one another via satellite and internet platforms. They will be able to share their learning and research experiences.
Some students will also gain the opportunity to spend an internship at the African Technology Policy Studies network’s offices in Nairobi. Here they can learn to apply their research to policy interventions that will address Africa’s resource opportunities and its climate challenges.

This image makes words about the environment in Kenya, or Africa as a whole, redundant.
So no words are here, other than those about the artist:
Omondi was born March of 1976 in Nyanza Province in the Western region of Kenya. The abundant black cotton soils of the area provided the basic material for his first form of expression as a child. In Nursery School, this immediately translated itself into a love of drawing that still dominates him to date.
