Application is now open for the 2022/2023 AFREhealth Competitive Scholarships by the AFREhealth. It also includes steps on how to apply, but you must meet the criteria before applying.
The AFREhealth Secretariat invites competitive applications from African universities to undertake innovative priority research, training, and education programs which include the development of evidence-based guidance documents in health professions education and research relevant to the African context. Applications that involve more than two AFREhealth universities will be prioritized. The funding awards are for a project period not exceeding twelve months at the end of which there should be demonstrable products including at least one submitted manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal that acknowledges the funding support. Satisfactory accountability of funds endorsed by one’s parent institution is an absolute requirement after completion of the project. For this round, up to 20 competitive applications may be awarded.
AFREHEALTH COMPETITIVE SCHOLARSHIPS ELIGIBILITY
All faculty who have a substantive appointment with a registered African university accredited in the home country are free to apply. Any application to be considered must have an underlying interprofessional approach, an equitable collaboration between at least two African universities, and must be in line with the AFREhealth strategic plan 2021- 2026 which can be accessed here https://afrehealth.org/resource/strategic-plan. Applications that propose de-novo clinical trial(s) are not allowed and will not be considered. However, awardees are permitted to obtain research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor. Eligible applicants must be endorsed by the leadership of their institution (not a department) via an official letter of support. An AFREhealth Technical Working Group (TWG) can also apply for a specific activity to advance its agenda.
