As of 2017, the Joint Master’s Programme has been designated as one of the select international postgraduate programs eligible for support through the EPOS funding scheme provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). This collaborative M.Sc. program equips postgraduate students with comprehensive knowledge, critical insights, interdisciplinary strategies, and necessary tools to address environmental risks and human security. It proudly stands as the third study program in Bonn under the auspices of the DAAD funding scheme, alongside the ZEF Doctoral Studies program and the ARTS study program offered by the Faculty of Agriculture at the University of Bonn.

Established through a successful partnership between the University of Bonn’s Department of Geography and the United Nations University, this Master’s program significantly contributes to the internationalization efforts of the University of Bonn, supported by the German agency, DAAD.

Application Procedure: • Students aspiring to be considered for these scholarships must apply for the program by completing the application forms for the DAAD.
