Bursary schemes to support palliative care in sub-Saharan Africa

This program is made possible thanks to a grant from the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.

Individuals living and working in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe are eligible to apply.

Bursaries will be awarded in two categories:

Postgraduate qualification courses in palliative care. Courses need to be in institutions which are government accredited and academically affiliated and for post graduate level leading to a certified and government recognized formal degree (ie Distance Learning Diplomas, MSc/MPhil).

Research courses on basic research and methodology, including study design, statistical tools, statistical analysis and applicability, writing grant applications for research and preparing a paper for publication in peer-reviewed journals.

Applications must be received three months in advance of the course starting date. Preference will be given to individuals applying for courses based in Africa. Applicants may only apply for one of the two bursaries.
