Every year there will be call from 1st October until 12th November. Only applications in English language will be accepted.

After having submitted the application, a preselection of the documents will be carried out and successful applicants studying phytochemistry and medicine will be invited for a personal interview in Doula at Foyer du Marin (hotel close to the “Direction Générale de Douanes”) at a weekend in November or December. Travel costs will be reimbursed. For phytochemistry and medicine, up to 15 fellowships each can be granted. The total lump sum per fellowship is 500 Euros per semester. To obtain a fellowship for a second semester, a written comprehensive interim report (5 pages) must be submitted before May of the following year including a recommendation letter of the supervising professor. Based on the quality of the submitted documents a written decision regarding granting a second fellowship rate will be given.

At the end of the second semester of the fellowship program a barbecue meeting for all fellowship holders will be organized in Douala which can serve as a starting point for an
Alumni network. Upon this meeting the three best students of medicine who want to become a medical doctor working with patients will be selected for a special award, which will allow them to attend a 3-months practical course at the University hospital in Cologne, Germany during the following semester. All travel costs as well as accommodation costs will be covered by the Adolphe Monkiedje fellowship program.
