Since inception, the CARTA program has been training African PhD scholars to international standards here on the continent. The program seeks to build and retain a vibrant African academy of researchers who are able to lead world-class research providing solutions to the enduring challenges that impede growth and development.
CARTA’s cohort-based approach is developing a pipeline of highly trained and quality doctoral graduates, and provides a conducive working environment for these graduates in African universities to ensure its impact. Here are some of the program’s achievements to date

“There is now general recognition among the CARTA stakeholders, and especially the fellows themselves, that the CARTA approach represents a significant enhancement of quality and that they will emerge with an education that is on par with international standards”. —SIDA Evaluation Report
