This program awards grants to Ugandan university faculty and others to pursue advanced degree, non-degree, or research programs in the United States.  Although typical exchanges are with universities, candidates who are affiliated with other educational, cultural, or professional institutions may apply.

    • Be citizens of Uganda;
    • Possess at least a bachelor’s degree;
    • Have a minimum of three years of teaching or working experience at a university, educational, professional or cultural institution and be committed to return to work in Uganda upon completion of their program;
