The International Federation of Biosafety Associations (IFBA), in collaboration with the Biorisk Management Association of Kenya (BMAK) and the Biosafety & Biosecurity Association of Uganda (BBAU), is inviting applications for a Government of Canada funded scholarship to certify the technical competency of individuals engaged in bio-risk management and biosecurity practices in the East African region.

This scholarship will provide funding to cover travel and accommodation costs associated with participation in a training workshop and examination session geared towards obtaining an IFBA Professional Certification in Biorisk Management or IFB Professional Certification in Biosecurity. The session is tentatively scheduled to be held in Nairobi, Kenya, in February 2018. The examination in Biorisk Management will be offered in both the English and French languages.
