2 Additional RISE Networks Announced

The Regional Initiative in Science and Education (RISE) today announced that two more networks will be supported through an additional grant from Carnegie Corporation. With an earlier grant award of U.S. $3.3 million to support the initial three networks selected in July, Carnegie Corporation has invested a total of U.S. $4.9 million in the initiative. RISE focuses on strengthening higher education in the sciences and engineering by increasing the population of skilled Ph.D.- and M.Sc.-holding scientists and engineers teaching in Africa’s universities.
