Tailored academic and research opportunities for Researchers and Academicians in Developing Countries

For an academic and a researcher in developing countries, accessing timely and relevant opportunities and being able to act on them is not only important for successful career development, but also for survival in today’s highly competitive sector. The internet provides excellent opportunities, but unfortunately, most of the resources available are in their generic form making it difficult for individuals to decide on whether a certain resource or call is relevant or not. As a result, many academics spend their precious time checking and reading resources that are neither relevant nor important, making many to abandon searching at all and fail to benefit from the tremendous resources that the net can benefit.

Recognizing the increase in number of people in the academic and research profession, and that most online resources are generic and not tailored, my self  (Mulubrhan Balehegn) and my colleague  (Dawit Gebregziabher) have now started to periodically post tailor made resources that would allow any one to decide on whether to pursue a certain resource or not within seconds. We will provide resources on the following ;

  • Scholarships (BSc/ BA, MSC/MA, PhD,  Postdoc)
  • Short term professional training, meetings etc
  • Internships and professional attachments
  • International and local consultancies
  • Research funds
  • Other funds (bursaries, research funds, travel grants)
  • Call for conference papers
  • Call for joining international research teams
  • Free online academic and research resources and many more

For each type of call we will provide short descriptions of what kind of resource it is (e.g whether it is a scholarship, small bursary, travel grant etc, and how much is the benefit), who is it targeting and how to make applications.

Besides to providing these resources, we will personally coach and direct applicants who are interested in applying to any of the resources we will list or to any other resource available anywhere.
