Through travel grants of up to a maximum of $2 000, Connect Africa Scholarships are for early career scientists and students in Africa who are pursuing opportunities for research development. Applicants must either be students or researchers at Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI), HIV Pathogenesis Programme (HPP) or Centre for the AIDS Programme of Research in South Africa (CAPRISA), or be seeking assistance to travel to one of these organisations.
The funding covers travel within South Africa or to other countries in order to learn new techniques, attend conferences and scientific courses, take part in teaching opportunities, build new scientific research collaborations and develop global and intra-Africa partnerships. The scholarships also aim to leverage the research and training facilities of the three research organisations, and to offer young African scientists (undergraduates, postgraduates, postdoctoral research fellows and early career research scientists) the chance to develop further as researchers.
