No Scholarships ...
Dear Friends and Readers,
We receive such a large number of applications for scholarships, sponsorships, and fellowships for study courses, further education, training courses and Ph. D. thesises, that we feel it is necessary to explain our organization and services in this respect.
The "Information Service for Appropriate Technology (ISAT)" is a project of GATE, the German Appropriate Technology Exchange. GATE in turn is a division of the GTZ, German Technical Cooperation Organization. Since the GTZ (and GATE) is not a donor organisation it is not possible to offer any scholar or sponsorships to applicants from developing countries. Only within technical cooperation projects/programmes can project counterpart staff be offered an opportunity to improve their qualifications through special studies or training courses.
GATE/ISAT cannot do this. We do not plan or implement any technical cooperation projects or programmes. We are, as the name implies, an information and advisory service on appropriate technology. We have no own funds at our disposal other than those in support of this service, since we offer advice and information to enquirers from developing countries free of charge.
You will appreciate the costs involved in this alone, relating to the preparation and printing of relevant information material, the research for, collection, storage and up-dating of information, up-keeping our documentation and data bases, in short « managing of information and resources» for the benefit of the inquirers. Much as we would like to be able to help directly, where and when the need arises, we can only do this with in the possibililities of our information and advisory service.
