DAFI Scholarships For 2019

DAFI has pioneered a new approach, moving beyond basic education by opening up access to tertiary education and developing highly qualified human resources in situations of displacement. This focus has lead to a wider recognition of the potential of academic education for refugees.

Since 1992, the Albert Einstein German Academic Refugee Programme (DAFI, referred to by its German acronym Deutsche Akademische Flchtlingsinitiative) has provided scholarships to more than 6.000 deserving refugees worldwide to study at universities in their host country and, more recently, in their country of origin upon return.

Financed by the Government of Germany, DAFI has been and remains a unique opportunity for refugees to continue higher education while outside their country of origin.

Through scholarships for university education, DAFI contributes to the search for durable solutions for individuals of concern under UNHCRs mandate, who through this support have been enabled to provide vital support towards the reconstruction of conflict affected countries.

UNDP is the UN’s global development network whose focus is to help countries build and share solutions to the challenges of sustainable development as informed by the 2030 sustainable development agenda.

To achieve this, UNDP occupies itself with unlocking much-needed expertise and finances required by the country.

Linking the global agenda to national development priorities as outlined in the National Development Plan to ensure that all resources invested yield outcomes which translate to better lives for people.

UNDP’s communications strategy is intended to increase UNDP South Africa’s visibility, market successful projects, document successes and best practices, improve internal communication and strengthen media relations to keep the public and stakeholders (including government, civil society, other UN agencies, private sector, development partners) informed about our role and activities.

Duties and Responsibilities

Under the direct supervision of the Communications Analyst and the overall guidance of the Country Director of UNDP, the intern will undertake the following tasks:

The intern must provide proof of enrollment in health insurance plan;

Interns are not staff members and may not represent UNDP in any official capacity;
