Applications are invited for the Pan-African School for Emerging Astronomers (PASEA) 2022. The Pan-African School for Emerging Astronomers is a programme held every two years in Africa.
Organized and taught by a collaboration of international astronomers, the main goals of PASEA are to contribute in building a critical mass of astronomers across Africa, and build community among African scientists. PASEA alumni are now attending graduate programs across the globe including in countries such as South Africa, UK, Canada, Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria, Portugal, and serving as teachers, scientists and engineers in their home countries.

The programme features:
- an undergraduate curriculum that includes lectures and hands-on activities.

- countless opportunities to network and collaborate remotely with STEM students from across Africa!
