Sawiris Foundation for Social Development (SFSD), in cooperation with its administrative partner the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) grants two scholarships yearly, to outstanding graduates from the four German schools in Egypt: DEO, DSB Cairo, DSB Alexandria and ES in New Cairo, to pursue their studies and earn their bachelor and master degrees in any field of study (excluding Medicine) from one of Germany’s most prestigious universities. Sawiris Foundation has always prided itself with ensuring quality education, both traditional and nontraditional, is accessible to everyone. One of our goals is to ensure all students have an accessible and inclusive environment to learn.
During the scholarship period, an annual review is conducted to ensure the Excellency level of scholars and to ensure the continuity of the scholarship. Designed workshops and seminars are obligatory to the scholarship holders to attend during their study in Germany, to ensure their knowledge and familiarity with the SFSD – DAAD scholarship policy and regulations.
