Background

The Japan Africa Dream Scholarship (JADS) Program is a capacity-building project by the AfDB and Japan which was initiated in 2017. 

It aims at providing two-year scholarship awards to highly achieving African graduate students to enable them to undergo post-graduate studies (i.e. a two-year Master’s degree program) in selected priority development areas on the continent and Japan.

The overarching goal the AfDB and the Government of Japan seek to attain is to enhance skills and human resources development in Africa is under the Bank’s High 5s agenda (i.e. “Feed Africa”, “Light up Africa”, “Industrialize Africa”, “Integrate Africa” and “Improve the quality of life of the people of Africa”) and key Japanese development assistance initiatives.

JADS core areas of study focus include energy, agriculture, health, environmental sustainability, and engineering.

The program also seeks to promote inter-university collaboration and university-industry partnerships between Japan and Africa.

Upon completion of their studies, the JADS scholars are expected to return to their home countries to apply and disseminate their newly acquired knowledge and skills in the public and private sectors and contribute to national and continental socio-economic development.
