Thank you very much for the programme. I am a 24 year old male Ugandan, diploma holder in Horticulture Production and Management from Bukalasa Agricultural College in 2009.

I belief that this Heinrich Boll Scholarship will be my answer to apply for the scholarship to pursue my Bachelor degree in Agriculture and Food.

I am from a disaster area of northern Uganda .

May Almighty God bless the Foundation.

Hello friends,

My names are Ambrose NaziYesu.

I believe in the German dream, organization, technology, infrastructure, culture and governance.I love Germany. I love its Ideals. I believe in its people's ability to bring change to the world, simply by their resiliency of the past.
To learn these ways even better, I have to be in Germany and nowhere else. I need a scholarship. I have a bachelors degree in interior design, though my passion is in world governance. I am an exceedingly intelligent Fella with uncanny abilities that qualify me for every task that the globe professes.
