CARTA Fellows will undertake their PhD studies at one of CARTA's nine participating African universities. The Fellowships include modest monthly stipends; small grants for research activities, laptops and relevant software; funds for travel to conferences, as well as costs for participating in joint program activities. CARTA fellows will also participate in annual series of 3-5 week-long, residential Joint Advanced Seminars (JAS). The seminars will serve to: 1) Expose students to key theories and concepts, seminal readings, and research methods of disciplines relevant to public and population health; 2) Train students in critical research skills; and 3) Build and maintain a network of researchers for scientific collaborations, professional support, and mutually beneficial exchange of scientific resources.

Each fellowship is provided for a period of four years.
