Applications are open for the AMARI-II Fellowship Programme 2023/2024 at the University of Zimbabwe. This funding opportunity is to build scientific excellence in MNS research through collaboration with universities in Africa and the UK. In addition to research training, fellows will be trained in research leadership, management, and mentorship. There will be a strong focus on developing community-based intervention strategies with the aim of addressing the treatment gap that exists in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The African Mental Health Research Initiative (AMARI) is a mental health research capacity building programme. AMARI-II builds on the initial AMARI-I which ran from 2015 – 2022. AMARI-II is being implemented with funding support of the second phase of the Developing Excellence in Leadership, Training, and Science in Africa (DELTAS Africa), an initiative of the Science for Africa Foundation (SFA) with funding support of Wellcome and the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO).
AMARI-II is a consortium of six African universities whose overall goal is to build excellence in leadership, training, and science amongst African scholars in mental, neurological and substance use (MNS) research in Africa. AMARI-II aims to shift the centre of gravity in global mental health (GMH) by ensuring that African scientists become leaders in GMH research, training and implementation. Key focus will be on strengthening AMARI-II’s collective ability to introduce interventions that reduce the treatment gap for mental health disorders in Africa.
AMARI will provide scholarship for a PhD Fellow and will cover the following:
- Tuition fees
- Reasonable support for research project and supervision
- Monthly stipend
- Travel costs for agreed conferences and training workshops
