IRD PhD Grants program

The « Allocations de recherche pour une thèse au Sud” (ARTS) is one of the programs supporting the strengthening and consolidation of research potential in southern countries being implemented by IRD. Through this program, IRD intends to help with the initial training of scientific staff in southern countries.

IRD PhD grants are intended to support PhD students from southern countries who are writing a thesis under a partnership between a northern research team and a southern research team, providing them with supervision and a good quality working environment and, in so doing, strengthening these countries’ research capabilities.
The goal is to prepare & encourage young researchers to integrate the higher education and research system of a southern country, after finishing their thesis.

Deadline for your submissions: 31 May 2016
