The Central Asian Faculty Development Programme (CAFDP)

UCA offers inimitable opportunities for Central Asian scholars to pursue an academic career with low faculty student ratios, opportunities for research, excellent facilities, and an organisational culture that places high value on integrity in all facets of its operation.

Through its Central Asian Faculty Development Programme (CAFDP), the University of Central Asia (UCA) has partnered with international affiliate universities to provide opportunities for prospective faculty members to engage in advanced study and research abroad. UCA aims to fill high proportion of its faculty positions with highly qualified Central Asian nationals with international experience and recognised credentials.

UCA needs, over time, hundreds of scholars from various disciplines - with an emphasis on creating a cadre of Central Asian academics who can deliver UCA’s teaching programmes and conduct requisite research. CAFDP offers support for Central Asian scholars to pursue doctoral studies on the understanding that upon graduation they agree to serve as UCA academic staff for a minimum of four years.

Ramzan Ali (centre) was a CAFDP Fellow in 2012 and currently works at UCA as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics.

The University aims at having a high proportion of its faculty comprising Central Asian nationals with international experience and recognised credentials. CAFDP is also supporting students to receive financial assistance to pursue advanced graduate degrees at UCA’s partner institutions. CAFDP has partnered with the Asian Institute of Technology, Carleton University, German Academic Exchange Services (DAAD), Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore, Michigan State University, University of Alberta, University of Bern, University of Cambridge, University of Exeter, and Cambridge Trust.

In the first cohort of CAFDP fellows, the Programme supported a select number of outstanding independent PhD candidates though its Individual Funding Scheme, offering partial funding for students accepted into doctoral programmes in disciplines that are an academic priority for UCA.
