Erasmus Plus Master Program - Cover letter copy

Subject: Erasmus+ MITRA Master Program: “Transnational Migrations” application

Dear Selection Committee,


It is with great interest that I heard about the Erasmus Mundus master training entitled: Mitra: “Intercultural Mediation: Identities, Mobilities and Conflicts”. From a bilingual country, Cameroon, that boasts of a remarkable cultural diversity (more than 200 ethnic groups), I grew up in a multicultural Northern Cameroon, a region shaped by the mobility of peasant societies. My academic training in Historical, Archaeological and Heritage Sciences, in addition to personal initiatives, such as the founding of the Action for Education and Peace that promotes peace and access to quality education to the underprivileged, I am a product of a rich culture that prioritizes the issues of settlement, social cohesion, interethnic integration, and the resolution of conflicts in plural communities.


     Currently, I am a final year postgraduate student in a Master’s degree in the Department of Historical, Archaeological, and Heritage Sciences at the University of Maroua. I also serve as the National Coordinator for the Action for Education and Peace since 2017. Throughout my postgraduate studies, I endeavor to organize my course in a way that enables me to acquire a double skill (theoretical and professional) to enhance my professional career. Thanks to this immense intellectual wealth in social sciences and field activities in communities, I hope to pursue my studies in the special field of the management of cultural diversity the prevention and resolution of conflicts related to human mobility.

        In the Erasmus + program, I see a unique opportunity to acquire an enriching  cultural  diversity experience from my interactions with students from around the world. Such a total cultural immersion will provide me with a realistic approach plus a reasonable learning of global culture, language and traditions. It is by this reason that I profoundly desire to enroll in the Erasmus mundus Master’s degree course which I believe suits both my academic and professional background while matching my career prospects.


In light of the unrelenting multiethnic crises facing Cameroon and especially in the far North region (bordering Chad and Nigeria), I teamed up with several other young people to establish the Action for Education and Peace which we registered in 2017. Within this organization, I have managed to train and support multitudes of displaced victims of conflicts in the Far North region.


With this field experience, I am determined to attend this training in intercultural mediation, not only, because I have lived in an environment shaped by  migration  and the crises it generates, but also because it is a rising academic research field where I can precisely bring my scientific and practical knowledge. The Erasmus Mundus training  in  the management of cultural diversity will allow me to concentrate my research efforts within the historical and sociological theories from which I have extensive knowledge. This will enable me to share my experiences with other students from different cultural  and geographic  areas of the globe. From the program, I will also contribute direct knowledge to facilitate the interethnic co-existence in northern Cameroon and the wider Central Africa where sub­ regional integration is facing crises linked to cultural and linguistic differences, in addition to the terrorist attacks perpetrated by the Boko Haram sect.


My participation in the high-level training in intercultural mediation offered by Erasmus Mundus will also contribute enormously to the realization of my career development. I believe that every one of us have to bring his contribution in the development of the society. After my master degree, I plan to continue in the doctoral research to be even more efficient and very practical because I like to transmit the knowledge to the young people. The activities that I carry out with my organization Action for Education and Peace, I plan to develop this organization and make it important and unavoidable in my country by developing partnerships with UN organizations whose responsibility partially includes the promotion of intercultural dialogue and the social cohesion and integration of displaced persons and government. I wish to have a representation of my organization in each region to impact and change in our way the living conditions of the populations

          In addition, from my interactions with several professionals about this program, I have gained utmost respect for the high-quality hands-on training offered in this course. Such information convinced me of the programs flexibility and suitability to my professional needs.  At  the same time, I also greatly appreciate the linguistic and cultural diversity of the territories on which the Universities  members of the Consortium  offering  this training  are located. Finally, this program will enable me to develop my open-mindedness and the ability to work in a team within  a  multi-cultural  learning   environment.  I  enjoy  learning  abo1+t  new  cultures   and traveling. Also, I intend to bring my Cameroonian culture to create a reciprocal exchange with all the other students throughout my journey.

Thank you for considering y application and looking forward to your response.
