The objectives are to:

• produce a cadre of young, talented researchers through integrated PhD scholarships and shared supervision of post-graduate students between the UK-based and African consortia members.

The scheme is funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).

The second round of applications is now open until 19 March 2015.
