Connect Africa Scholarships
The Connect Africa Scholarships aim to leverage the recently expanded K-RITH research facilities in Durban, South Africa to offer young African scientists (undergraduates, postgraduates, post-doctoral research fellows and junior faculty) the chance to further develop as researchers.
The scholarships facilitate opportunities for international exposure, learning new techniques, attending conferences and scientific courses, taking part in teaching opportunities, building new scientific research collaborations, and developing global and intra-Africa partnerships by providing travel grants to K-RITH and other international sites.
Two categories of scholarships will be awarded:
Open to young African scientists who wish to travel to the KwaZulu-Natal Research Institute for Tuberculosis and HIV (K-RITH), and affiliated sites in KwaZulu-Natal. Individuals based at K-RITH and affiliated sites in KwaZulu-Natal can also apply to travel to other parts of Africa. African citizens or permanent residents of any of the 53 African countries plus territories, based at an institution in Africa are eligible to apply.
Open to young African scientists based at K-RITH and affiliated sites who wish to travel outside of Africa (e.g. the USA or Europe).
