Uganda Research Training Collaborative

URTC Team 2 gathered around a tableThe Uganda Research Training Collaborative (RTC) is a program for students in the University of Minnesota's Academic Health Center and participating institutions in Uganda, This collaboration aims to cultivate a culture of excellence in global health research. This program is facilitated by CGHSR, building on the strengths and infrastructure already in place through the AHC Hub in Kampala, Uganda.


The RTC provides an opportunity for inter-institutional teams of students, under the mentorship of UMN and Uganda based faculty members, to propose and carry out small-scale research projects.

Student teams who successfully complete preparations for research training are eligible for travel funding and a small amount of research money for expenses and fees. 


Give now to support students' global health research. Our goal is to raise $1 million over five years to support faculty and students while building participation, awareness, and momentum toward future sustainable funding.  Your support is appreciated!
