Fostering Research and Mobility through Education (FRAME) Project bid farewell for the first PhD exchange scholarship student who completed her 12 month stay at Hawassa University (HU).
Larissa Makeu from University of Buea, Cameroon, has collected data from different parts of Ethiopia including Bonga, Bishoftu, Debre Birhan and Debre Sina. Larissa was hosted by School of Plant & Horticultural Science, College of Agriculture. She has been conducting her research and lab work under the supervision of Dr. Hewan Demise.
Dr. Melisew Dejene, coordinator of FRAME project at Hawassa University, stated that currently the project has five African students hosted by Hawassa University. Hence, four African students are currently enrolled in MSC program for Soil and Water Coservation Engineering at the Institute of Technology (IoT), HU. The coordinator indicated that he hopes to receive at least two to three more African Students at HU.
The project has also sent eight Ethiopian Scholars, most of them HU staff, to partner African Universities (University of Buea, Cameroon, UFS, South Africa, KNUST, Ghana and NUST, Namibia).
