Science and Power in Participatory Forestry (SCIFOR)
The Faculty of Forestry and Nature Conservation of the Sokoine University of Agriculture, in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen, Denmark hereby invites interested and qualified citizens of Tanzania (holding MSc degree or equivalent) to submit applications for 2 PhD scholarships related to the DANIDA financed project ‘Science and Power in Participatory Forestry’ (SCIFOR). Students will be enrolled at both the Sokoine University of Agriculture and University of Copenhagen, with a possibility of attaining a double degree.
The scholarships are of three years duration, and will commence on July 1, 2014. The PhD scholars will be supervised by a joint team of senior academics from the Faculty of Forestry and Nature Conservation and University of Copenhagen, and will be provided PhD level training in both university environments. The PhD study and research will be closely integrated and coordinated with all the other activities in the SCIFOR project.
The overall goal of SCIFOR is participatory forestry planning and management practices that support equitable, environmentally sound, and economically rational forest management. The project involves investigations of management planning practices and outcomes in forests managed under Participatory Forest Management in Tanzania.
The 2 scholarships come with different requirements:
- The PhD scholarship #1 entitled ‘Forest management planning, participation, and power in participatory forest management’ involves a case study aimed at understanding the role of management planning, i.e. preparation of the legally required operational plan in (i) shaping participation and inclusion in decision-making and benefit-sharing and (ii) informing actual forest management practices at the community level.
- The PhD scholarship #2 entitled ‘Forest management planning and conservation in participatory forest management’ focuses on understanding the role of forest management planning in shaping conservation outcomes of community forestry, and thus involves forest inventories and remote-sensing analyses to document past and present forest condition, as well as participatory mapping and interviews to understand the knowledge used in forest management at community level.
The aim is to synthesize the research results from Tanzania with the results of similar studies that will be carried out in Nepal under the auspices of SCIFOR.
Detailed descriptions of the aim, content, requirements, financial conditions, and application procedure for each of the two PhD scholarships and the application procedure is posted on the SUA homepage (www.suanet.ac.tz

Commonwealth Scholarships for students from developing Commonwealth countries
are offered for Master’s, PhD, and split-site (PhD)
study in the UK. These scholarships are funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID)
NominationsThere is a nominating agency for Commonwealth Scholarships in each Commonwealth country. In addition, universities and university bodies in a number of developing Commonwealth countries are invited to nominate candidates to the CSC.
Each year, the CSC invites each nominating agency/university/university body to forward a specific number of nominations. Each nominating agency/university/university body is responsible for its own selection process, and in most cases they will set their own closing date, which will be before the CSC’s deadline for nominations (17 December 2013).
Approximately 300 of these scholarships are awarded each year. The CSC invites around three times more nominations than scholarships available – therefore, nominated candidates are not guaranteed to get a scholarship. There are no quotas for scholarships for any individual country. Candidates nominated by national nominating agencies are in competition with those nominated by universities/university bodies, and the same standards will be applied to applications made through either channel.Other scholarships offered by the CSC

- Academic merit of the candidate
