The Africa Programme of the University for Peace (UPEACE) has secured funding from the Canadian International Development Research Centre (IDRC) to offer 15   PhD Grants in two categories: PhD Fellowships and Doctoral Research Awards. Both grants are specifically for African students pursuing their PhDs in Governance and Security Studies in a University in Sub-Saharan Africa.

In the category of PhD fellowship, 4 grants will be offered with a maximum award of $45,000 over a period of three years. This grant is intended for freshly enrolled candidates and will cover expenses including tuition, living expenses and a semester abroad at a Canadian university.

In the category of Doctoral Research Awards, 11 grants will be offered with a maximum award of $10,000 over a period of two years. This award is intended to support PhD candidates, who are at the final stage of their PhD studies to cover expenses like field research, data analysis, associated travel, and production costs.

Deadline for application is 28 February 2012

Female applications are especially encouraged to apply.
