Caribbean Development Bank Scholarship (Nov. 28, 2022)
The Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) actively supports the enhancement of the public financial management systems of its borrowing member countries (BMCs), including in the area of public procurement. Robust public procurement is critical to ensure that scarce public funds are used appropriately and in a transparent manner to provide essential public goods, infrastructure and services to support the wider strategic goals of the BMCs. Therefore, CDB has engaged with all of its BMCs to provide support with procurement reform including capacity building.
To further CDB’s support of procurement capacity building in the Caribbean and to develop the strategic design and utilisation of public procurement, CDB is pleased to offer, through technical assistance funds provided by the Government of the Republic of Italy, a scholarship for a candidate to complete the International Master in Public Procurement at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. The programme runs from March 2023 to February 2024. The selected candidate would be required to be based in Rome for a period of 4.25 months. The scholarship would cover:
- the full tuition fee for the postgraduate programme;
- travel costs to and from Italy for the programme; and
- an allowance to live on campus at the university and for living costs.
