Welcome to the Mawazo Institute!

Hello, and welcome to Mawazo!  We're excited to have you with us as we start our work supporting the research careers of East African women. 

A bit of background: Mawazo was founded in late 2016 by Rose Mutiso and Rachel Strohm.  We've known each other since our undergraduate days at Dartmouth College, where we got our start in African education activism by creating the Students for Africa association.  In mid-2016, we realized that we were both looking for the next steps in our careers, and shared a passion for supporting African women in academia.  A great deal of brainstorming later, the Mawazo Institute was born.

We're currently preparing to launch our PhD Scholars programme in late 2017.  In the meantime, we'll be sharing news, scholarship opportunities, and other interesting content on our blog.   Subscribe to our newsletter as well for all the latest updates!
