UKTA AND SMART AFRICA AGREE CAPACITY BUILDING SCHOLARSHIPS

UKTA signed a partnership agreement with Smart Africa that will boost capacity building, a key enabler of the Smart Africa Manifesto which has been endorsed by the African Union.

“The UKTA Board is honoured to join the Smart Africa Alliance and contribute to its success,” said UKTA Chairman Gabriel Solomon. “The scholarships will help African leaders establish the right policy and regulatory environment to ensure the next leap of ICT evolution and we are eager to work with Smart Africa Member States in this regard,” he added. “Smart Africa is delighted to be collaborating with the UKTA on our important mission,” said Smart Africa Executive Director Dr Hamadoun Touré. “With its long history of educating African students and its excellent relationship with our institutions, UKTA is a credible partner we can rely on,” he added.

Scholarships are available to qualified citizens of Smart Africa Member States and will be awarded on a gender equal basis.
