CIALCA PhD scholarships

The Consortium for Improving Agriculture-based Livelihoods in Central Africa (CIALCA) is offering four 4-year PhD sandwich scholarships to candidates from Burundi (1), Rwanda (2) and DR Congo (1) to do research in smallholder banana- and cassava-based agrifood systems. The ‘sandwich’ modality means that PhD candidates receive a stipend when in Belgium (between 18 and 24 months), and that their Rwandese, Burundese or Congolese academic or research institute provides salary when the PhD candidate is conducting fieldwork in their respective country. The PhD scholarship covers all operational costs related to the implementation of the research.
Deadline for application: 30 June 2018
