100 PhDs for Africa programme: 2nd call for proposals

Excellence in Africa – 100 PhDs for Africa programme: The second call for proposals is open

The EXAF Centre is launching the second call for proposals of the “100 PhDs for Africa Programme”, as part of the Excellence in Africa initiative, jointly launched by UM6P (the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University in Morocco) and by EPFL (the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne).

The 100 PhDs for Africa programme will give to science and engineering graduates the opportunity to pursue a PhD at an African higher education institution. The PhD students 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 institution in Africa, and they will spend short periods of time at EPFL and at UM6P (summer and spring schools, workshops, conferences).

The first call for proposals is now open, with a deadline for applications set for 18 April 2023 (17:00 UTC+2). Talented master graduates who have the endorsement of a professor at an African higher education institution for PhD supervision are very welcome to apply.

We kindly invite you to disseminate this information on your website and, if possible, amongst your network of contacts. You will find here the application guidelines. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions (exaf@epfl.ch).
