As part of the EPFL–UM6P’s Excellence in Africa initiative, the EXAF centre has launched a call for proposals of the ‘100 PhDs for Africa’ programme.
Outstanding students, who wish to benefit from this fellowship to complete a PhD at an African institution, are encouraged to apply.
UM6P and EPFL have launched the Excellence in Africa initiative (EXAF) to support the rise of the next generation of researchers in Africa.
This ground-breaking initiative aims to enhance their research skills through collaboration with EPFL professors.
It is based on the premise that it will contribute to building their career and enable them to heighten their economic and societal impact in Africa.
The programme ‘100 PhDs for Africa’ is one of three pillars of the EXAF initiative.
It is designed to fund science and engineering graduates intending to complete a PhD at an African higher education institution.
The PhD candidates benefiting from this programme will be jointly supervised by a professor of an African institution and by an EPFL professor.
They will conduct their doctoral studies and their thesis research at their home institution, and they will spend short periods of time at EPFL and at UM6P (summer and spring schools, workshops, conferences).
Their degree will be awarded by their institution in Africa.
