2018 PhD Scholars.JPG

We're thrilled to introduce our first cohort of Mawazo PhD Scholars!  We received 170 applications for the 10 spots in this programme, demonstrating the high levels of demand for research funding and training amongst Kenyan PhD students.  After a difficult selection process, we chose ten exceptionally talented women.  Keep an eye out for profiles of each Scholar and their work over the coming weeks!
