Ford Foundation International Scholarships for Uganda, Africa, Developing Countries

The Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program provides support for up to three years of formal graduate-level study leading to a masters or doctoral degree. Fellows are selected from countries and territories in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and Russia, where the Ford Foundation maintains active overseas programs. U.S. nationals are not eligible, although Fellows may study in the United States.

Fellows are chosen on the basis of their leadership potential and commitment to community or national service, as well as for academic excellence. Fellows may enroll in masters or doctoral programs and may pursue any academic discipline or field of study that is consistent with the interests and goals of the Ford Foundation. The Foundation currently works in thirteen fields to strengthen democratic values, reduce poverty and injustice, promote international cooperation, and advance human achievement.

Once selected, Ford Foundation International Fellows may enroll in an appropriate university program anywhere in the world, including their country of residence. The program provides placement assistance to those Fellows not yet admitted to graduate school.

IFP support also enables Fellows to undertake short-term language study and training in research and computer skills prior to graduate school enrollment. In addition, new Fellows attend orientation sessions, while current Fellows actively participate in learning and discussion activities designed to create information and exchange networks among Ford Foundation IFP Fellows worldwide. Finally, the program encourages IFP alumni to maintain contact with the program after completing the fellowships to help them remain current in their respective fields through the expanding Ford Foundation IFP network.

Because local requirements vary widely among IFP countries, applicants should carefully follow the specific application guidelines provided by the relevant IFP International Partner organizations, including deadlines for the submission of applications.

    * Demonstrate superior achievement in their undergraduate studies and hold a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent.
    * Have substantial experience in community service or development-related activities.
    * Possess leadership potential evidenced by their employment and academic experience.

The Application Process

University of Manchester Scholarships for Ugandans and Developing Countries

The proposed programme of research seeks to use state-of-the-art computational techniques to reverse engineer the walking cycle of a predatory dinosaur. Software for image-based modelling, parallel finite element analysis and evolutionary robotics will be coupled and deployed over a computational Grid comprising many thousands of processors. This resource will facilitate a range of unique meta-experiments, enabling new scientific research to be undertaken that would otherwise not be possible. Not only will these experiments provide insight into the evolution of bipedalism or answer questions such as “How fast could T-Rex run?”, they will also lead to the development of computational techniques that may be applied in classical engineering sectors such as the Automotive and Aerospace Industries.

Aga Khan Foundation Scholarships

The Aga Khan Foundation provides a limited number of scholarships each year for postgraduate studies to outstanding students from developing countries who have no other means of financing their studies. Scholarships are awarded on a 50% grant : 50% loan basis through a competitive application process once a year in June or July. The Foundation gives priority to requests for Master's level courses but is also willing to consider applications for PhD programmes, when doctoral degrees are necessary for the career objectives of the student. Requests will also be considered for travel and study awards for PhD students doing their research in Third World countries on topics judged to be of interest to the Aga Khan Development Network. Applications for short-term courses are not considered; neither are applications from students who have already started their course of study.

Geographic Scope. The Foundation accepts applications from countries where it has branches, affiliates or other AKDN agencies which can help with processing applications and interviewing applicants. At present, these are Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Syria, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Mozambique, Madagascar, France, Portugal, UK, USA and Canada.

Selection Criteria. The main criteria for selecting award winners are: l) excellent academic records, 2) genuine financial need, 3) admission to a reputable institution of higher learning and 4) thoughtful and coherent educational and career plans. Candidates are also evaluated on their extra-curricular interests and achievements, potential to achieve their goals and likelihood to succeed in a foreign academic environment. Applicants are expected to have some years of work experience in their field of interest.

Age Limit. Preference is given to students under 30 years of age.

Financial Assistance. The Foundation assists students with tuition fees and living expenses only. The cost of travel is not included in AKF scholarships. Applicants are requested to make every effort to obtain funding from other sources as well, so that the amount requested from the Foundation can be reduced to a minimum. Preference is given to those who have been able to secure some funding from alternative sources.

Loan Conditions. Half of the scholarship amount is considered as a loan, which must be reimbursed with an annual service charge of 5%. A guarantor is required to co-sign the loan agreement. The payback period is five years, starting six months after the study period funded by the Aga Khan Foundation.

Application Procedures. The application procedures of AKF's International Scholarship Programme are decentralised. Students may obtain application forms as of January 1st each year from AKF offices or Aga Khan Education Services / Boards in their countries of current residence. Completed applications should be returned to the agency from which the form was obtained, or to the address indicated on the front of the form. They should not be sent to Geneva. The deadline for submission of applications is March 31.

Applicants should be prepared to be interviewed by local Scholarship Committees about their financial situation, their academic performance, extra-curricular achievements and career plans. Interview reports are sent with the applications to Geneva for the final selection.

The Quota Programme
The Quota Programme is a funding scheme offered by the Norwegian Ministry of Education, Research and Church Affairs to students from qualifying countries for studies at institutions of higher education in Norway. Students from these countries can apply for Master degree programmes and Doctoral degree programmes taught in English. Only applicants from countries on the list of countries eligible for Quota Programme funding will be considered.
For more than 20 years, Norway has provided support for students from developing countries and in 1994 this support was converted into the Quota Programme. The University of Tromsø has admitted students from developing countries since 1988, and participated in the Quota programme since 1995.
You can apply as an individual student, but applications from students at universities that have a formal agreement with our university are encouraged. Women from developing countries are especially encouraged to apply for the programme. Students are expected to apply from their home country.
The Quota Programme aims at offering English taught Master’s degrees, 2-year M.A.. or M.Sc. degrees, and also offers funding to doctoral programme students, normally one year at Master’s degree level and 3 years at Doctoral degree level. Admission is limited and therefore very competitive. Only applicants from countries on the list of countries eligible for Quota Programme funding will be considered.
The Norwegian universities’ M.A. and M.Sc. degrees are research degrees. At all levels, the number of years of university study required of applicants should be beyond the basic entrance requirements to Norwegian institutions of higher education. For Master’s programmes, the minimum requirement is that you have passed a Bachelor degree of at least 3 years at university level, all years being beyond the basic entrance requirements. For Doctoral programmes, additional faculty requirements also apply, but applicants must have a minimum of 5 years of university studies in their chosen subject.
Applicants must have university studies within the subject area of the programme to which they are applying. Since all programmes offered are very competitive, normally a B+ or an upper second division is required for admission. A documented knowledge of English is required for admission to any of the programmes offered under the Quota Programme.
The loans and grants cover living expenses for 2 years for master degree students and 3-4 years for doctoral degree studemts, the cost of a return ticket to Norway upon arrival and one return ticket during the summer vacation. Please note that these travelling expenses are refunded according to set rates, rather than being met in full. When the student returns home (which is a prerequisite for the student residence permit) the loans will be annulled. If the student should stay on in Norway, they have to pay back the loan part of the allowances they have been given.
In Tromsø, only 20-30 new students are admitted under this programme each year. The number of applicants is between 700 and 1000, and so even very good applicants might be refused. Because of these large numbers, only applicants who can prove that they fulfil all the admission criteria will be sent an application form. Forms can be obtained by sending an e-mail or letter to the Foreign Student Adviser, stating your academic background and intended course of study. If you do not follow this procedure you will not be sent a form.
Application material can be obtained from: a Norwegian Embassy/Consulate or the University of Tromsø, Foreign Student Adviser, N-9037 Tromsø, Norway (international@adm.uit.no)Applications to be sent to: the address aboveDeadline: 1st of December for the following academic year starting in August.
