MakCHS Grants Office

Welcome to the MakCHS Grants Office

The grants office was opened in May 2011 in order to respond to researchers’ plight. This was due to reports from researchers of compliance and management of their awards. There was also a need for centralized grant acquisition and administration at the Makerere University College of Health Sciences.

We are located at the Former Regional Center’s Research Room 7. Our mission is to increase the college uptake and management of Donor funded research and projects for innovative research, teaching and provision of services responsive to societal needs. The office provides both pre-award and post-award services. We work with you right from idea inception to award close-out.

Our Focus Areas are;

  1. Resource Mobilisation
  2. Capacity Building
  3. Grants and Contracts Management

Our Vision

A sustainable hub of Innovative Health Research Administration and Grants Management in Africa
