For Pre-Doctoral Students

In her passion to raise and support the next generation of African bioscientists, Dr Carol Ibe teamed up with Dr Noor Agip (an alumnus of the University of Cambridge) to set up the Africa Bioscience Mentoring Program for exceptional African students (fresh undergraduate graduates to master’s degree level) who wish to study for a PhD in top world Universities. The program provides high-quality personalized mentoring to support their aspirations of becoming research leaders in the field of applied biosciences.

The first cohort of 11 mentees graduated with First Class Honours degrees from African Universities and have benefited immensely from excellent advice and guidance provided through the mentoring program. Excitingly, some of our mentees now hold offers to highly competitive fully funded postgraduate degree programs at renowned Universities.
