Keep in touch via our social media pages.


Before now, WAISSYA has had a West African focus. However, our student community is diversifying, coming from 15 countries for WAISSYA2019, including non West African countries such as Rwanda, Congo and Ethiopia. You can read more about how WAISSYA has evolved here https://tinyurl.com/y9dfbdap

We currently have a call for expressions of interest from potential hosts anywhere in Africa for PASEA, check it out here: https://tinyurl.com/y9bbuu8t.

Students, alumni, faculty and astronomy enthusiasts: take this to your University and ask they consider expressing their interest!

Attending PASEA can broaden your horizons and prepare you for a career in astronomy, or other STEM fields.

Applications for PASEA 2021 will be announced next year!
