FRAME Project awards first scholarships

Last year, 206 students from across the African continent applied for scholarships through the Fostering Research and Intra-African knowledge transfer through Mobility and Education (FRAME) project. Twelve Masters and eight Doctoral students, who were selected in the first cohort, will pursue studies at the Universities of Buea in Cameroon; Free State in South Africa; Hawassa in Ethiopia, Kwame Nkrumah in Ghana and NUST. Two PhD students in Natural Resources Management and Engineering programmes, will be hosted at NUST.

Dr Lameck Mwewa, an academic in the Faculty of Natural Resources and Spatial Sciences and the FRAME Project Coordinator at NUST, is optimistic that all selected students will commence their studiesinMarch2021.Thisisdespitethe challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The overall aim of the FRAME project is to enhance human capital development in Africa with its main objective of focusing on staff and students’ skills and competence improvement through enhanced mobility on the continent. FRAME strives to implement Masters and Doctoral level programmes and staff mobilities, by
encouraging African students to undertake studies in specialised fields such as water, energy, and food security. NUST will host a total of 16 students and staff over the next four years out of 60 mobility scholarships across all partners. The mobility scholarship covers tuition, travel and visa, insurance, research, and monthly stipends to cover living expenses.

The FRAME project, jointly managed by the European Commission through the Education, Audio-visual and Culture Executive Agency and the African Union Commission, is funded as part of the Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme Initiative.
