The primary purpose of the Visiting Researcher Program is to foster the exchange of ideas between Uganda and foreign nationals and to stimulate international collaborative teaching and research efforts. The exchange of professors and research scholars promotes interchange, mutual enrichment, and linkages between research and educational institutions in Uganda.
Visiting researchers have the opportunity to be placed in one of our research initiatives where they can be exposed to research that the centre undertakes in one of our thematic research areas. The application process is competitive and are limited to individuals associated with other research institutes. Current PhD students may apply for affiliation as a Visiting Researcher.
