2013 African Doctoral Dissertation Research Fellowships

October 17, 2012

Deadline: January 15, 2013 The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC), in partnership with the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), is pleased to announce the sixth call for applications for the African Doctoral Dissertation Research Fellowships (ADDRF). The ADDRF Fellowship Program seeks to facilitate more rigorous engagement of doctoral students in research, strengthen their research skills, and provide them an opportunity for timely completion of their doctoral training. The Program targets doctoral students with strong commitment to a career in training and/or research. The overall goal of the ADDRF Program is to support the training and retention of highly-skilled, locally-trained scholars in research and academic positions across the region. The ADDRF will award about 20 fellowships in 2012 to doctoral students who are within two years of completing their thesis at an African university. In this phase of funding and in consideration of IDRC's health programming priorities, candidates whose dissertation topics address health policy or health systems issues will be given special consideration. The Program has also reserved three fellowships for doctoral students conducting research on health inequities in urban areas or the reproductive health of marginalized urban communities. These three fellowships are funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
