We are on a mission to change the way the world creates and uses trustworthy knowledge. We have seen sustained growth in the demand for high-quality evidence over many years, as well as the increasingly sophisticated skills necessary to respond to this demand.
As we continue to build Covidence, as a platform that accelerates the creation of high-quality evidence to speeds previously unimaginable, we also want to contribute to building opportunities and skills in our community.
This is why we are proud to launch the Covidence Global Scholarship Program in 2022. To support the next generation of superstar evidence researchers around the world. We recognize how difficult it can be to get funding to pursue academic projects, even ones that are a high priority for our society.
So we are helping to take some of the financial burden away so some of the world’s brightest PhD and Masters students can spend more time creating knowledge that will make a big impact in the world.
