APTI African Academy of Sciences Fellowship Programme, 2018

The new African Postdoctoral Training Initiative (APTI)is now ongoing for all new African students to pursue research training at a world-class institute, the intramural laboratories of NIH.

The main objective of APTI is to train a cadre of African scientists so they return to their home institutions and become scientific leaders in their community, help solve Africa’s challenges in global health and development, and in turn become trainers of the next generation.

The Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa (AESA) is a funding and agenda-setting platform seeking to address Africa’s health and developmental challenges by promoting the development of Africa’s research leadership, scientific excellence and innovation

Field of study:

APTI fellows will train in a global health research area of priority for their home institutions and countries, and AAS, BMGF and NIH, while building bridges and lasting connections between the partner organizations and African scientists and institutions.The research priority areas are in infectious diseases, nutrition, and reproductive, maternal, and child health and developing skills for clinical and translational research.

Scholarship Benefits:

After successful completion of the two-year postdoctoral fellowship, trainees will have 50% salary support for an additional two years to assist their transition into independent researchers.
