AFREhealth Competitive Scholarships 2023 | How to Apply


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.
