The Covid-19 pandemic has forced us to postpone the new call for the Guadalupe Scholarships program until circumstances make it appropriate. Grant applications already submitted before the postponement will continue to be considered when the call is reopened.
The project aims to promote the leadership of African women in scientific research with the aim of strengthening research centres in Africa, especially in the two areas of greatest impact on people: Life and Earth.
Each selected scholarship holder is offered the possibility of training abroad, with a stay (from 1 to 9 months) in the best international research centers with which Harambee enters into partnerships.
In the meantime, two of the fellows who carried out research in Spain have not been able to return home and, for them, the research work continues.
