The African Mental Health Research Initiative (AMARI) scholarships funded by the UK Wellcome Trust have been established to provide support for two PhD students to join the team in the Centre for Public Mental Health, in the Department of Psychiatry & Mental Health at the University of Cape Town.
Although the topic is of the successful Fellows’ choice, AMARI aims to create a sustainable career pipeline for these researchers with emphasis on integrating MNS research into existing programmes such as HIV/AIDS, and maternal and child health. Priority will be given to applicants who show evidence of leadership potential in the field. Although applicants from any of the four participating countries will be considered (Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Malawi & South Africa), we encourage applications from South Africans from previously disadvantaged communities. Please see document attached for further details.
Deadline for Applications: Friday 15 September 2017
Please forward the information to anyone who may be interested.
