Starting from 2016, the Department of Urbanism of the TU Delft provides one partial scholarship to students from Sub-Saharan Africa aged between 21 and 26 to participate in the Summer School. The scholarship consists of a stipendium that covers the travel costs and accommodation during the Summer School.

We are looking for an exceptionally motivated individual with excellent communication skills and capacity to work in a group, who can prove they will give a notable contribution to the Summer School and who can act as a multiplier of the knowledge acquired in their home institution. This scholarship is only available to students from Sub-Saharan Africa (including Sudan). We strongly encourage female students to apply .

Application for the scholarship will be open from February 1, 2017. Please, visit this page for updates.The first recipient of the Summer School Scholarship was Fitsum Abera Angasa from the EiABC in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.


 “Hello! My name is Fitsum Abera Angasa. I was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in 1989. In 2007, I joined the Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building Construction and City Development of the Addis Ababa University ( AAU – EiABC), and I got my bachelor in Architecture and Urban Planning in 2013. After two and half years in the practice, I got the chance to be an assistant lecturer at EiABC, in the chair of Basic Architectural Design in 2015.

I am really interested to assist students and I love my work.I was so excited when I was selected to receive a scholarship for the Summer School Planning and Design with Water. The summer school helped me learn the core values and processes in spatial planning and design. The summer school was well coordinated with many lectures by TU Delft professors, researchers and government officials, as well as site visits. We also worked in a group project which deals with water issues in Scheveningen, a harbor area, located in the west of The Hague.

At last I can proudly say that my summer school in TU Delft was fruitful , I took a lesson that can be applied in real practice and can be shared it in my university.Fitsum Abera, Bachelor of Architecture and Urban planning. EiABC-AAU-Addis Ababa University. LinkedIN, Architect : Brhanu Mussa Architects and Engineers, Addis Ababa- Ethiopia”


The Summer School Planning and Design with Water happens in July at the Department of Urbanism of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of the Delft University of Technology. To know more about the Summer School, please visit our website.
