The collaborative partnership between the University of Gondar, Queens University, Canada and the Mastercard Foundation has been creating practical results. As a part of the partnership talented students with disabilities and disadvantages are getting an opportunity to get an all-expense paid higher education, faculty and staff from the University of Gondar are studying abroad and the latest venture is an opportunity to gain a chance to do joint problem solving research.
The call for papers has a deadline of September 17, 2018. The research will advance practical knowledge and measures for (a) inclusion within primary, secondary, or tertiary education and/or (b) improved community-based rehabilitation (CBR) practices that enable access to and quality of schooling for young people with disabilities. Research should be relevant to Ethiopia specifically or the continent of Africa more generally. A key focus of the research will be on knowledge translation and practical applications to the fields of inclusive education and CBR. As part of this project, the program will fund eight proposals with a maximum budget of up to $60,000 USD per proposal.
