  1. Introduction

Makerere University (MAK) in collaboration with Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Uganda Martyrs University (UMU) and Regional Universities Forum (for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) are implementing a five year CoSTClim project (Collaborative Action for Strengthening Training Capacities in Climate Risk and Natural Resource management). The main goal of the project is to improve the quality of training, education and research at the partner institutions with a dedicated focus on climate risk, disaster risk management and natural resource management. CoSTClim builds on a range of other capacity development projects funded by the Norwegian Government at the partner institutions, but is more focused on education.

One of the components of CoSTClim is student mobility from Uganda to Norway and from Norway to Uganda.  Therefore, we are inviting applicants from Uganda Martyrs University and Makerere University for 6 (3 UMU and 3 MAK) Masters student mobility scholarships to NTNU for the Autumn semester in 2023. The scholarship will cover a maximum 5 months (August-December 2023) stay at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. The successful candidates can enroll in some selected course units at NTNU as well as leveraging the stay to write their master’s thesis. The width and breadth of available course units from which the candidates can select are found: Limited research supervision will also be given by NTNU staff but the primary supervision responsibility lies with the allocated supervisors at Makerere University.
