The scheme provides scholarships for fulltime studies. Only applicants from low- and middle-income countries of WHO African Region are eligible.

The training will be focused on courses relevant to a career in implementation research. Implementation Research is a growing field that supports the identification of health system bottlenecks and approaches to address them, and is particularly useful in low- and middle-income countries where many health interventions do not reach those who need them the most.  The goal of this scheme is to enhance graduate training capacity and boost the number of researchers in low and middle-income countries.

5 Master’s scholarships will be offered for the 2017/2018 academic year in the programmes listed above.
