The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES), Makerere University in collaboration with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences wishes to announce the
Erasmus+ ICM mobility students' exchange scholarship fully funded for both undergraduate and M.Sc. graduate students registered by Makerere University under the College of Agricultural and
Environmental Sciences.

The two institutions have supported such exchanges in the theme learning for sustainable knowledge-intensive agriculture and agribusiness. The mobility is intended to offer opportunities
to accelerate education and engagement of the youth in agripreneurial innovations that transcends cultural historical divides. This international exchange is also aimed at raising
awareness and promoting experience, knowledge, ideas and skills necessary for taking action towards enhanced agricultural sustainability.

The mobility project will not only comprise bidirectional staff exchange for guest teaching and teacher training opportunities in the two universities but will also offer an opportunity for
students from the two universities to be exposed to multiple options to take courses according to their study levels (BSc. or MSc.) or perform internships that are valid for university credits.
The scholarship will support 5 students to attend courses at SLU in 2019 and 2020. The program is designed to enable students transfer their ECTS creditJ credit units (CU) back to the home
