New Programme of Research Development Fellowships funded by the Medical Research Foundation’s Africa Research Excellence Fund
The Medical Research Foundation has recently established the Africa Research Excellence Fund (AREF) to nurture excellent health research by Africans, in Africa with impact for Africa. The AREF is pleased to announce its first programme of AREF Research Development Fellowships.
This is a new opportunity intended to benefit outstanding early-career African researchers. The Programme is designed to enable talented, African researchers who have been awarded their PhD in the last four years to develop their own research ideas and funding proposals. Each AREF Fellowship will support a placement of up to nine months in a leading research organisation in Europe or South Africa.
The deadline for receipt of applications is 1600 hours (GMT) on 8 July 2015. Our first awards will be announced in November 2015.
Please read on for further information about the competition and how to apply.
