Daniel R. Mekonnen
'The Georg Forster Research Fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is the most prestigious grant that I received during my five years in Europe. Many people consider it to be one of the finest in the world. As far as I know, I am the first Eritrean ever to receive the Humboldt fellowship. This fact alone lent my experience in Germany particular significance.'
