  • Additionally, AREF will fully fund all workshops and mentorship support costs associated with the programme.

Eligibility:

  • Open to research active post-doctoral scientists and clinicians who are nationals of and employed in Sub-Saharan Africa who were awarded their doctorate after May 2014;
