IREX (the International Research & Exchanges Board) in the United States currently administers a program for university administrators through funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. IREX, in consultation
with Carnegie, has recently expanded the program to include university administrators from Makerere University.
The program provides fully funded fellowships of approximately eight weeks at public universities in the U.S. for mid and senior level administrators to analyze U.S. models and administrative culture through firsthand experience, in order to continue to strengthen management and administrative capacity at their home institutions.
After completion of their fellowships in the United States, the university administrators may apply for small
grants to jumpstart innovative reform projects at their home universities. The program also promotes collaboration and development of sustainable partnerships between administrators, their U.S. counterparts, and their
institutions. Please find more information about the program through the following web link:
