Application Deadline: 15th February 2017

Eligible Countries: Nigeria and Cameroon

To be taken at (country): Nigeria and Cameroon

About the Award: Though  Cameroon  and  Nigeria  are  neighbors  and  share a  lot  of  similar  cultural values,  this  potential has  not  been  exploited for  the  collaborative knowledge and advancement of  either country.  Consequently,  though   they   share a  border,  they know  little  or nothing  about  each  other and  hardly  engage  in literary collaborations that  could benefit both  countries.

  • Applications not  following  the  rules  will automatically be  disqualified.
  • The working  language of the workshop is English.

Selection: Applicants   will  be   selected  by a  jury   appointed  by Goethe-Institut Lagos  and Yaounde. The jury’s decision  will be final and non-appealable.

Number of Awardees: Not specified

Value of Program: The  workshop  will  feature  different  stages  of  exchange  in  both   Cameroon  and Nigeria at no expense to the applicant.
