The Africa Research Academies for Women (ARA-W) Summer Undergraduates Research Program was developed out of the 2-month survey conducted by Student for A Healthy Africa (SAHA). The survey revealed that the inadequate number of women in STEM in Africa was as a result of the non-existence of undergraduate research opportunities for about 90% of them.
This program gives exceptional female undergraduates a 2-month paid research internship opportunities with the aim of exposing them to relevant research experience to enable them provide innovative solutions to health, environmental and engineering problems in Africa.
Beyond the research experience, selected applicants are paired with mentors in Africa or US and in turn, they will serve as mentors to future participants. Twenty eight (28) ladies have gone through the program since its inception in 2014. ARA-W hopes to create a strategic partnership with more research institutes both locally and overseas to host future participants for summer internship research opportunities.
This year's Summer Undergraduate Research Program is opened for application from female undergraduates studying STEM in any Ghanaian university.
All interested and eligible applicants are encouraged to apply.
