Master Program Scholarships

A key intermediate objective of the ENRECA-Gulu University project is to support:

  • that 18 Gulu University Staff are enrolled in, or have completed, a Master program.
  • that these staff teach at their respective faculties as well as publish relevant articles in peer-reviewed journals.

The ENRECA-Gulu University project has supported the enrollment of 18 Master students in programs at Gulu, Mbarara and Makerere universities in Uganda. Of these, three have already submitted and had endorsed their final thesis, while the rest will finalize during the course of 2012. Out of the 18 students currently supported by the project, 6 are female (33%).

Of the current 18 Master students, 15 are GU teaching staff, while the remaining are students at Gulu University. The students supported originate from all the five faculties of GU, e.g. Education, Science, Medicine, Agriculture and Business.

Each of the Master students has a Ugandan supervisor and a Danish co-supervisor selected among the Danish researchers participating in ENRECA-Gulu University. Furthermore, each of the students was provided the opportunity to participate in post-graduate courses organized by ENRECA-Gulu University, including writing courses (qualitative and an upcoming quantitative) conducted by ENRECA-Gulu University researchers and tailored specifically to the needs of the Master students.

Apart from the Ugandan Master students, 6 Danish master students have been affiliated to the project with their own funding, strengthening the North – South research linkages and collaboration.
